U2's song Vertigo from their album How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb begins like this:
Un, dos, tres, catorce!!
In Spanish that's "one, two, three, fourteen". Why "fourteen"?
I've read a number of theories, ranging from it being a reference to the Bible, to the number of North Korea's atomic bombs, to a nudge to their producer, to Bruce Springsteen saying that "rock and roll does not have to be one, two, three, four", to it being the number of albums they had made, to them being just too drunk to get the Spanish words right.
What is U2's official stance, if any, regarding the meaning of "catorce" in this song?
