Let me tell you somethin'

I've had enough of Irish Americans who haven't been back to their country in 20 or 30 years come up to me and talk about the resistance, the revolution back home and the glory of the revolution and the glory of dying for the revolution.
FUCK THE REVOLUTION!!                     

They don't talk about the glory of killing for the revolution. What's the glory in taking a man from his bed and gunning him down in front of his wife and his children? Where's the glory in that?                       

Where's the glory in bombing a Rememberance Day parade of old age pensioners, their medals taken out and polished up for the day. Where's the glory in that?                     

To leave them dying or crippled for life or dead under the rubble of the revolution. That, the majority of the people in my country dont' want.

NO MORE!!           

위 영상은 U2의 1987~1988 미국순회공연을 다큐형식으로 만든 DVD Rattle and Hum 에서 발췌한 것이며, 1987년 11월 8일  Denver 공연에서의 Sunday Bloody Sunday 입니다. U2 영상 중 가장 인상적인 것중 하나인 듯 합니다.

U2 의 With or Without You [Joshua Tree :1987] 를 처음 들었을때 기타리스트 the Edge의 clean tone 은 정말 제 몸 속에 각인되는 듯 했었고, Fuck the Revolution 을 외치는 Bono 의 갈라지는 목소리는 제 맘속에서도 갈라지는 듯 하며, 락리듬의 최고봉 the Edge의 Fender Stratocaster도 정말 터질 것 같습니다.
