"I was feeling really good at the beginning. Shit, this is going to really work. We're going to fly through this stuff. Boy, oh boy, was I wrong!"
- Larry on the recording of Songs of Innocence
The name Achtung Baby was chosen so that their new album could not be taken seriously because on their last album Rattle and Hum, they were critically attacked. Achtung means attention is German: "Attention, Baby," is the literal translation.
