It took me a long time breaking it down into dots and dashes and translating, but it in fact is:
"Yabba Dabba Do"

"We Love The Who" in Morse code is:
.-- . / .-.. --- ...- . / - .... . / .-- .... ---




"Yabba dabba do" in Morse code is:
-.-- .- -... -... .- / -.. .- -... -... .- / -.. ---


sorry guys

As you can hear is playing a single note and the shifted octave of it. Like an FSK-Code ( Frequency Shift Keying).
This is used to encode digital information. In this case when you decode edges guitar as binary code you get:


42 !!!!


Wait, isn't that the answer the computer gives in A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy? Perhaps Edge remembered the secret of the universe that he lost...

Awwww, but we were just starting to have a good time. It really was a valid question, I think. But the thread goes the way the thread will go...

You are wrong. All of you. The Edge is a huge fan of Scorpions and Quiet Riot. In this intro he is trying to imitate "Rock You Like A Hurricane" and "Main Attraction" intros.
