"There's a Bono factory. The band, when they saw me getting busy, opened a factory. It's just there at the back of [Dublin suburb] Tallaght. And there's various different ones, and they're being used for different occasions."
- Bono on the fact that he seems to appear everywhere and with anyone, 2009
The song 'A Day Without Me' was written in response to the suicide of Ian Curtis of Joy Division and reflects Bono's take on the selfishness of suicide, which is the dominant theme of the song.
