Bono's foreword says it best, 'The poets who fill the pews here have come to testify, to bear witness to the mysterious power of rock and roll.' Though of course, many of these poems are noteworthy in themselves, not just as part of a tribute to rock and roll.

The poems and poets - including Billy Collins, Rita Dove, Allen Ginsberg, Lynda Hull, Bill Knott, Yusef Komunyakaa, Philip Larkin, Derek Mahon, Paul Muldoon, Daniel Nester, and Charles Simic - presented by Jonathan Wells in Third Rail are a testament to the endless reach of rock and roll.
