"[I]n the early '80s . . . there was this rather ridiculous idea . . . that if it was big, it was bad. Which of course rules out Elvis."

Peace On Earth Lyrics

Found On:

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"Peace On Earth" (live from London)

"Extreme militant Unionists and militant Republicans didn't like the word compromise. Some of these militants broke away and a dissident Republican group known as the Continuity IRA decided to try and destroy the peace process, which was just taking baby steps, by letting off a car bomb in the tiny town centre of Omagh on 15 August 1998. It killed 29 people and injured 220 men, women and children just out doing their Saturday shopping... Maybe because we felt we had a stake in the peace process, I could not comprehend how people could do something like that. The closest I ever came to a crisis of faith happened after that. It was hard to be a believer at that moment. We wrote the song 'Peace On Earth' after that, which is as bitter and as angry a song as U2 have ever written." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Heaven on Earth
We need it now
I'm sick of all of this
Hanging around
Sick of the sorrow
Sick of the pain
Sick of hearing
Again and again
That there's never gonna be
Peace on Earth
