Released: March 1987 Political & social concerns were the basis for several tracks. Bono wrote "Bullet the Blue Sky" after visiting El Salvador & witnessing how US military intervention in the country's civil war hurt the local people. This trip also inspired "Mothers of the Disappeared", after Bono met members of COMADRES—the Mothers of the Disappeared—a group of women whose children were killed or "disappeared" during the Salvadoran Civil War at the hands of the local government.
