"It's the most un-rock 'n' roll thing you could do, so I never ever talked about it, but that was actually my obsession before rock-and-roll."

"Alex Descends Into Hell For A Bottle Of Milk/Korova 1"

"As research for Clockwork Orange, I was listening to a lot of industrial music, noisy and abrasive sounds built around drum machines and clangorous sonic distortion. I was really getting into these harsh recordings by bands such as KMFDM, The Young Gods and Einstürzende Neubauten." - The Edge, U2 By U2 2006

Dies irae, dies illa
Dies irae, dies illa
Tuba mirum spargens sonum
Decet in inferno
Dies illa, dies illa

English translation of the Latin lyrics:

A day of wrath, that day
A day of wrath, that day
The trumpet's wondrous call sounding abroad
He descended into hell
A day of wrath, that day
