The song could be thought of as starting in either A#m or Bbm, giving these two options:
- start in A#m (7 sharps) but the flat 2nd and flat 5th are used, giving B and E instead of B# and E#, or
- start in Bbm (5 flats) but then there'd be Cb, Fb, and Abm chords, making a 7-flat scale.

Either way, the first chord destabilizes the rest of the chords in the verse. It's genius. Enjoy!
