"I don't believe in luck. I walk under ladders. I'd have 13 tattooed on my arse without any problem. But I do think the universe can turn cold and nasty. I'm never surprised when the worlds get a bit ugly. I'm never surprised when U2 meets resistance".
- Bono, 2015
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.
