It was the same way for me, actually. It just grew on me to be a fantastic track. Especially the opening. I really enjoy the Vertigo version. It is a song I really have to listen to. I can't have it in the background while working. I must listen.

And what happened?

I was never really into Bad until recently. I don't know what it was, but I started liking the song.

Bad is not an "easy" song. It takes some listenings to fully "understand" the song. Once you do, it turns out to be a fantastic track. the studio version... Talk about sonic landscapes

Yes, there's something very, very wrong with you.

Just teasing. But seriously, I've loved the song from the very beginning.

I like the studio version. Great percussion.

The best live versions are the Lovetown and ZooTV ones. The Elevation versions are totally weak. Haven't heard any Vertigo versions.

Absolutely not! I love it, but different people appreciate different things.

The other day I read a post by someone saying that Running To Stand Still was their least favourite track on The Joshua Tree - it's possibly my favourite. Which one of us is the odd one?

just kidding

for me, i never liked the song at first when I heard it.
i hated how bono would sing 'i'm wide awake..' and later the 'seperation... intemptation.. etc.' but once i started to listen to the song itself and understand it, it became one of those inspirational type of songs that i couldn't get enough of.

'bad' just seems to be one of those songs that needs to grow on you, and one day your eyes will open to the song just like many other's have, such as me

the studio version is average, a good live version will steal the show

I guess I'm one of the few people who loves the UF version as much as the live versions. It's probably my favorite U2 song ever.

It's also the guitar in that song that makes it so great... I love how Edge plays....
