Why Bono sweated over his Bloody hit

"The song will be sung wherever there are rock fans with mullets and rage," joked Bono this week about U2 track 'Sunday Blood Sunday'.

However, the U2 singer admitted that he was initially nervous when he played the song to his record company in 1983. "Over time, the lyric will change and grow. But with the Cockneyed record company boss at the song's birth, the maternity ward goes quiet when the man announces that the baby is 'a hit' ... with one caveat. Drop the 'bloody'. 'Bloody' won't bloody work on the radio."
