OTHER NOTES
The song "Children of the Revolution" is a cover of a T-Rex song from the 1970s.  It was recorded specifically for this release by Bono, Gavin Friday and Maurice Seezer.  If you listen closely during the movie you can hear this track, but it is a remix of the track.  The remix has never been commercially released.

Although U2 doesn't perform in any way on the song "Elephant Love Medley" the song does feature a small snipped of "Pride (In the Name of Love)" and this is also credited in the liner notes of the soundtrack.
