If first took shape during the How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb recording sessions as a song called Full Metal Jacket, and later Native Son. When Steve Lillywhite was brought in as producer mid-way through the recording process, he asked Bono if he’d be able to sing the lyrics to Native Son in a live setting. Two CD versions were released in most regions.
