// About 'Wide Awake in America'
Wide Awake in America is a four-track EP, released in 1985. It collects various B-sides from the era, which had only been available in the UK, along with a previously unreleased live performance of the song "Bad".
It was originally released only in North America and Japan but sold so well that it charted in the UK as an import. It was re-released internationally in 1990.
The EP's centerpiece, "Bad", a song about heroin addiction, would become a staple of their live set, particularly after a remarkable extended performance at Live Aid in which Bono dances with a girl in the audience.
