"U2 won't break up over creative differences. We'll break up over someone squeezing the toothpaste from the wrong end of the tube."
- Larry Mullen jr.
U2 had considered several other album titles for Achtung Baby, including Man (in contrast to the group's debut, Boy), 69, Zoo Station, and Adam, which would have been paired with the nude photo of Clayton. Other possible titles included Fear of Women, and Cruise Down Main Street.
