OTHER NOTES
In 1996, Larry Mullen and Adam Clayton contributed the theme music to the summer blockbuster, Mission: Impossible. The song appeared in two versions on the soundtrack: The Theme from Mission Impossible and Mission Impossible Theme (Mission Accomplished). The song was released and became a hit single in the summer of 1996. Several promotional singles were released featuring remixes by various producers.

Other sources have listed the version on the juke box single as a 7" Edit. This is not the case.  Upon listening to my copy it is the 3:27 version of the song.
