"Gone" Song by U2 from the album Pop
Released: March 1997
"Mofo" is a song by U2. It is the third track on the band's 1997 album Pop and it was released as the album's final single on 8 December 1997. The song was partially written about Bono's mother, whom he lost at the age of fourteen. Other songs which Bono wrote about his mother include "Lemon", "I Will Follow" and "Tomorrow".
"Mofo" opened every concert from the 1997-1998 PopMart Tour. Although the studio version released on the album was more techno-oriented, live performances had an increased rock arrangement. It appears in the concert film PopMart: Live from Mexico City and also on Hasta la Vista Baby!, a live album from the same show.
