Beat on the Brat: Written by Jeffrey Hyman, John Cummings, Douglas Colvin. Performed by U2. Produced by Mike Hedges for 3kHz.  Engineered by Ger McDonnell.  Assisted by Chris Heaney and Matthieu Ciouard.  Recorded at HQ, Dublin.
On February 25, 2002 the NME Carling Awards were held.  These awards are affectionately known as the Brats.  For their acceptance speech for Best Live Act, U2 recorded a video of them playing "Beat on the Brat" by the Ramones.  Adam Clayton was not in attendance in the video and bass tech Stuart Morgan filled in on bass behind a cardboard cutout of Adam.  At this time it is not known if this is the same version which has been contributed to this compilation, but shortly after this public showing of U2 performing "Beat on the Brat" their contribution to this compilation was announced.  The video taped performance was also recorded at Hanover Quay studios in Dublin.

The limited edition digipack CD actually contains 20 tracks.  The first 16 tracks are listed as above (including the Eddie Vedder bonus track).  Track 17, 18, and 19 are short 10s blank tracks.  Then Track 20 is the hidden track "Today Your Love, Tomorrow the World".  On the non limited edition the CD contains the first 15 tracks, three tracks of silence then this hidden track.  The bonus track itself was released on the first pressing of the CD only and appears on 100,000 copies of the release. 

The album had a series of rumoured release dates throughout much of 2002. A press release confirming the February 11, 2003 release date was sent out in mid-January, 2003. Part of the proceeds of this album go to benefit the Lymphoma Research Foundation.

  • U2 recorded a version of the Ramones' "I Remember You"live at their Irving Plaza show in New York City in December of 2000. This was released on the Elevation single as well as the Sunday Times promotional single.
