"Every day I turn around and think, 'What the fuck was I doing? How did I get here?'. I did not own any of their records at all. Not even Achtung Baby, not Zooropa. I came into it totally fresh."
- Howie B on working with U2 for Pop
U2 changed many of the tracks' names of No Line On The Horizon during recording, retitling "French Disco" to "Magnificent" and "Crazy Tonight" to "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight". "Chromium Chords" became "Tripoli", and finally "Fez – Being Born".
