OTHER NOTES
In 1997 a band by the name of the Jeep Grrlz were signed to Island records, home of U2.  This song, Re-Wired, was something which they were doing in the clubs throughout the UK.  Island thought about suing the band, but chose to sign them and release the song instead. Island approached U2, and Edge gave the permission to release the song was given.  Island chose to only release the song as a promotional item.  Both a 12" and a CD version of the promo were released.

The song itself samples U2's Wire from The Unforgettable Fire album.  Lyrics from that recording are intermixed with new vocals, and a dance recording.
