"Bad was something we had done with Brian (Eno) as a sort of 'impro' piece, and he wouldn't let us replay it or change anything, so the improvisation stands pretty much as is."
- Adam on recording 'Bad'
Bono wrote the song 'Out of Control' on his 18th birthday. It is about a feeling of having no control. Nothing changes now that your eighteen and never does. Feeling the pain from his mothers death and having no control over that or anything else.
