Mofo is such a killer song it's so un U2 I'd imagine it originated during the making of the Passengers album and they decided to keep it for a proper U2 record, they were listening to a lot of dance and electronic music and wanted something that would stand up alongside that.Discoteque , Do you feel loved and Gone are pretty much out there aswell they got as far away from U2 as they possibly could unfortunately the Americans didn't buy into it hence why they now see the album as a problem child.

"All Along the Watchtower" was recorded in Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco in front of what many consider to be the ugliest sculpture in the city. Bono's spraypainted words required a formal apology from the band and were removed within days.
