"Bad" off 1984's The Unforgettable Fire is among U2's most popular songs that has not been released as a single. After the mainstream success of their 1983 album War, the Irish band sought out a breezier and richer sound on the follow-up and employed Brian Eno and his engineer Daniel Lanois, an unknown at the time who pretty much made his name with his work for U2 and, later, Peter Gabriel. "Bad" is a beautiful song about heroin addiction, which steadily builds in intensity and is one of the key songs on The Unforgettable Fire. Although a live favourite, I've chosen to enclose the studio version below. Listen, and enjoy!
