"What I did was push the performance aspect very hard, often to the point of recklessness. I think that musical recklessness goes a long way on records. You don't hear enough of it."
- Daniel Lanois, on recording the Achtung Baby album
U2 considered a few other titles for the Achtung Baby album like "Cruise Down Main Street" and "Fear of Women". Also "Man" and "Adam" were options.
