I dont like BAD, is something wrong with me?

I never really got into the song. Its an okay song but I cant seem to find anything truly special about it. Am I missing something here? maybe I should listen to the song upside down or something...

I wouldn't say something is wrong, but ... maybe that something is not right?






Just kidding. Guess it's about taste. Listening to it right now, from Chicago, and I must say Bono is in top form.

It's my second favourite U2 song. The way it builds. The way Bono sings so ridiculously higher "I'm wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide awaayaaaaaaaake!"

I love the song...

but I've found the recent Vertigo Tour versions to be very uninspiring.

No I feel the same way about the song, I don't get all the fuss. I do like hearing it live though even now, it was cool to hear it in Chicago.

maybe because it was one of the defining moments in U2's career during live aid, that it will always have a special place in U2's fans hearts...

The first time I heard it was on the best of cd (sorry, late U2 bloomer) and I didn't know the name of it or what album it was on, I just knew I loved it and it has been my favorite U2 song ever since.

I thought the studio version from TUF was good but when I listened to the live version from WAIA I was blown away. And then seeing it on RAH was just

For a while Bad did nothing to me, just "normal" U2 song. Nothing special. However after few months I've loved it, especially after hearing the live version on WAIA EP. Take a time, you will love it also.

I think the reason I love it so much is because of what happened when he sang it during the Elevation show I was at....

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.

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
