Soundgarden announce deluxe reissue of Badmotorfinger for 25th anniversary

on October 07, 2016, 11:09am

Soundgarden’s third album, Badmotorfinger, turns 25 this year, and the band has announced four different anniversary reissues to celebrate. Coming on November 18th from UMe/A&M Records, the highlight of these releases is a limited seven-disc Super Deluxe Edition featuring a total of 79 previously unreleased tracks, videos, and mixes.

Spread across four CDs, two DVDs, and a Blu-ray Audio disc, the Badmotorfinger Super Deluxe version consists of 109 tracks in total. There’s a newly remastered version of the original album, along with a disc of 15 never before heard studio outtakes mixed fresh from the original analog multi-tracks. That second CD also features the version of “New Damage” with Queen’s Brian May. The package also boasts Live at the Paramount, the band’s first-ever complete concert album. The live recording comes from a March 6th, 1992 gig at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre.

That performance is also included on one of the DVDs, making Live at the Paramount Soundgraden’s first-ever complete concert video as well. It comprises a 19-song performance newly edited from the original camera masters along with 5.1 surround sound and stereo mixed from the original analog multi-tracks. The other DVD features the 1992 video album Motorvision, available on DVD for the first time. In addition, the disc includes music videos for “Jesus Christ Pose”, “Outshined”, and “Rusty Cage” alongside 11 select live performances from throughout 1992 and interviews with the band and friends.

The final piece of the massive reissue is a Blu-ray Audio disc containing the entire Badmotorfinger album, a trio of B-sides, and three music videos. The audio portions feature new visuals directed by Josh Graham.

All of this comes housed in a collector’s box that has a battery-operated Badmotorfinger icon on the front — and batteries are included. There’s also a 52-page book with new art, unreleased images, and “commemorative testimonials from fellow musicians and peers.” Also inside is a 12×12-inch Badmotorfinger silver foil 3D lentiular, four 8×10-inch photo cards with each band member, two stickers, and a 25th anniversary Badmotorfinger iron-on patch. What’s more, if you’re one of the first 1,000 people to pre-order through,, or, you’ll get an exclusive 7-inch of “Jesus Christ Pose” b/w “Stray Cat Blues” and a custom Badmotorfinger icon 7-inch large hole adapter.

And exhale. You got all that? If you’re into something simpler, there’s also a two-CD Deluxe Edition with the entire album plus selections from the Super Deluxe Edition’s bonus material or a single-CD remaster housed in a gatefold softpak that converts the original six-panel folder design. The last option is a double-LP with a 3D lenticular silver foil litho cover that can be removed to reveal a gold foil jacket cover; side four of the vinyl also features a 25th anniversary etching. The first 1,000 who pre-order via,, or can get it in metallic silver vinyl instead of the standard black.

All pre-orders are going on now ahead of the November 18th release. Find the packaging complete track listings for the Super Deluxe configuration below.
