Bad 25 is a 25th anniversary special edition reissue of Michael Jackson's seventh studio album Bad. This is the second album by Jackson to be re-released on its 25th anniversary. Michael Jackson set out to do the impossible with Bad: try to outdo Thriller, his classic 1982 LP. While Thriller still outsold Bad, unlike Thriller, the latter had five consecutive #1 singles, which had never been done before until recently; Katy Perry tied the record.

Album InfoEdit

Along with the original album, Bad 25 will contain unreleased demo recordings and a live CD and DVD of Jackson's performance at Wembley Stadium during his Bad World Tour, which was attended by Princess Diana and Prince Charles. This performance from Jackson's Bad World Tour has often been hailed as one of Jackson's best performances, and has been petitioned for release by fans for years.

A box set, which includes booklets with photos, will include both the two-disc album and the DVD, along with a CD of the Wembley performance audio. A vinyl version of the original 1987 release (which does not include "Leave Me Alone") will also be released.


In a press release by the Estate of Michael Jackson on May 3, 2012, the album, which sold between 30–45 million copies worldwide (making it one of the best selling albums of all time), will be re-released on September 18, 2012 with co-operation with Legacy Recordings, Sony Music and MJJ Productions.

Pepsi has signed an agreement contract with the Michael Jackson Estate to make and sell one billion cans, to promote the upcoming album, an exclusive global partnership with the estate as part of its new "Live for Now" campaign. This will include a retail campaign, music, live events and opportunities for fans to access special edition merchandise. Pepsi plans to promote the 25th anniversary of Bad by printing one billion Pepsi cans with a photo of Michael Jackson from the "Smooth Criminal" video, and limited edition 16 ounce cans will also be produced and all cans will be distributed worldwide. Here are old Pepsi commercials Jackson actually performed in during the Bad era!
