U2's 'Pop': A Reimagining of the Album 20 Years Later

U2 kept fiddling with their ninth LP long after it hit shelves in early 1997, so here's a new take from live recordings, remixes and re-recordings

"Discothèque" (2002 Mix)

The first taste that the world got of Pop was "Discothèque," which they promoted with a video where the group dressed up like the Village People. This was a far cry from "With or Without You" and many fans that happily stuck around for Achtung Baby and even Zooropa were a little stunned. But the song was one of the few Pop tracks to get a live airing after PopMart, and in 2002 the band remixed it for The Best of 1990-2000. It's not a radically different take on the track, but it is a bit more polished and shows how the song developed on the road.
