Warner Brothers originally approached Bono about the possibility of including a MacPhisto like character in the Batman Forever script, and had asked him to consider appearing in the film. Apparantly the creators working on the movie had caught an appearance of Bono in MacPhisto character and were fascinated with the character, and felt they could make him fit within the movie.

Bono eventually declined the offer, and instead offered to contribute a song to the soundtrack.  The song, "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" had originally been left unfinished from the Zooropa album.  U2 finished the recording of the song and contributed it to the soundtrack. It was released as a single, with several promotional offerings, as well as a gorgeous animated video.

Also on the soundtrack is Bono's good friend, Gavin Friday, singing backup n the Hutchence track, "The Passenger", and PJ Harvey who is also managed by Paul McGuinness and who has toured with U2 on both the Zoo TV tour and the Elevation tour.
