OTHER NOTES
11 O'Clock Tick Tock features two songs which have never appeared on a U2 album.  Even though it has never appeared on an album, 11 O'Clock Tick Tock continued to be a staple of live performances for years to come. A performance of 11 O'Clock Tick Tock appeared on 1983's live EP Under a Blood Red Sky.

This was the first single released on Island Records, which would be the record company which would release all of the albums and singles outside of Ireland.  CBS continued to release U2's music within Ireland at this point.

This single was also the first and only single which was produced by Martin Hannett.  Hannett left his mark on the music world producing artists such as Joy Division / New Order, OMD, and the Happy Mondays.  U2's Hannett produced work has appeared on two compilations: Martin and Here is the Young Man.
