CDR issued to promote the 20th anniversary release of Achtung Baby in 2011. The disc highlighted a number of high profile songs from the album (All five singles are represented here) as well as two b-sides, “Satellite of Love” and “Where Did it All Go Wrong?”. And finally it also revealed the new song “Blow Your House Down” which was being delivered to radio for promotion for this release. The disc is printed with information about the tracks, and was released in a plastic wallet with a full colour printed insert.

As the new song was included, a water mark was said to be encoded into the CDR allowing for the identification of the user. The CDs are also individually numbered on the front side under a warning that says “Restricted Release Watermarked Disc” and “This CD Belongs To:” The smaller print mentions that “This specfic CD has been individually marked with a unique code that allows Universal music to track any copies made from it back to you (including distributed on the internet).”
