The content of the single was more dynamic than its predecessors, however; it had only one remix of the A-side by State ; titled " Mix" in the US and "12" remix" in the UK , an additional treatment of a album track "Idiot Country", with Ultimatum , and an earlier mix of "Disappointed" called "Electronic Mix" in the US. The A-side of the single is itself a remix since producer Stephen Hague reworked the "Original Mix" for single release.
Although Electronic would enjoy three more top-twenty singles in the United Kingdom, "Disappointed" was the last major commercial success for the band on an international level, becoming a dance chart hit in the United States and reaching the top 20 in Germany as well as number six in the UK, their highest-charting effort there. Until the release of Get the Message - The Best of Electronic in , the track was not available on an Electronic album release.
However, since "Disappointed" was featured in the film Cool World , the song was available on the soundtrack album Songs from the Cool World.

Lydon and Wobble had previously played music together during the final days of the Sex Pistols. Both had similarly broad musical tastes, and were avid fans of reggae and world music.
Lydon assumed, much as he had with Sid Vicious, that Wobble would learn to play bass guitar as he went. Wobble would prove to be a natural talent. Lydon also approached guitarist Keith Levene , with whom he had toured in mid, while Levene was a member of the Clash.
Lydon and Levene had both considered themselves outsiders even within their own bands. Jim Walker , a Canadian student newly arrived in the UK, was recruited on drums, after answering an ad placed in Melody Maker. PiL began rehearsing together in May , although the band was still unnamed. In preparing their debut album, Public Image: First Issue , the band spent their recording budget well before the record was completed. As a result, the final album comprised eight tracks of varying sound quality, half of which were written and recorded in a rush after the money had run out.
The single "Public Image" was widely seen as diatribe against Malcolm McLaren and his perceived manipulation of Lydon during his career with the Sex Pistols. The track "Low Life" with its accusatory lyrics of "Egomaniac traitor", "You fell in love with your ego" and "Bourgeoisie anarchist" has also been regarded as an attack on McLaren, although Lydon has stated that the lyrics refer to Sid Vicious.
The two-part song "Religion" refers contemptuously to Roman Catholicism; Lydon came up with the lyrics when he was part of the Sex Pistols but he claims the other members of the band were reluctant to use them. The track culminates with the sound of a fire extinguisher being let off in the recording studio, as Lydon had lit a fire whilst in a weird trance-like state during the recording session.
The first album was subsequently renamed as First Issue. We had a fuckin' good drummer called Jim Walker, but he fucked off after a few months [in early ] and it just fell apart. Somehow it had sort of death throes that produced a couple of blinding albums. The departure of Jim Walker made way for a series of new drummers. He was replaced by Karl Burns formerly and latterly of the Fall. Following sessions took place in which Martin Atkins would show up for an 'audition' and discover himself in the middle of a recording session with the tape rolling.
The recording was released on Metal Box as "Bad Baby". Metal Box was originally released as three untitled rpm inch cm records packaged in a metal box resembling a film canister with an embossed PiL logo on the lid it was later reissued in more conventional packaging as a double LP set, Second Edition , and features the band's trademark hypnotic dub reggae bass lines, glassy, arpeggiated guitar, and bleak, paranoid, stream of consciousness vocals.
Metal Box is starker than First Issue , more spread out and uncompromising, and scattered with bits of ambient synthesiser. The design for Metal Box was the brainchild of Dennis Morris. PiL had a series of contentious live shows and behind-the-scenes controversies during their first American tour in Their appearance at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles was fraught with hostile exchanges between Lydon and the audience.
Tensions offstage mounted as well. PiL demanded that they work only with local promoters, bucking the promotional machinery of Warner Bros. Records , their American label. This business arrangement pitted the band and CD Presents in a pitched battle against San Francisco-based promoter Bill Graham , who negotiated with concert venue owners and San Francisco government officials to deprive PiL of a concert location. Fearing public outbursts if the show was cancelled, San Francisco city officials instead opted to allow the CD Presents-sponsored event to proceed.
