Best live songs that "explode"

By explode i mean live songs that start out soft with just a backing track, or just 1 or 2 members of the band playing before the whole band joins in.

My Top 3 are:

Streets
Sunday Bloody Sunday (Rattle and Hum)
God Part II

what do you all think?

Good choices. I'll add a few.

Where the Streets Have No Name
Sunday Bloody Sunday (Rattle and Hum version)
Elevation (Vertigo Tour)
City of Blinding Lights
God Part II
Beautiful Day (sort of - everything is held back anyway)
The Cry/The Electric Co.

I'm shocked Exit hasn't been brought up yet.

It explodes in a similar way to Beautiful Day.

That is my favorite U2 song.

Love and peace or else..sort of. Takes a while to properly begin, but as soon as larrys mean drum part kicks in the whole arena/stadium explodes.
And elevation on the vertigo tour. Love that!

Don't hate me 4 this but even the way they played "Stuck.." on this tour, going from the acoustic to full band version was great.

I agree with all the above..and add one more:

New York

It packs a late punch in a much different way than the others listed so far, but I have to say that I went from not liking it much on the album to loving it live.
