October 8, 2016 marks the 25th anniversary of Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger, the band's 3rd studio release and the album that truly catapulted Soundgarden to international fame. Because of the focus placed on the Seattle "Grunge" scene at the time of Badmotorfinger's release, two songs from the album, Outshined and Rusty Cage, received airplay on radio and MTV, helping establish the genre that would be known as alternative rock.
On November 18, Soundgarden are celebrating the anniversary of Badmotorfinger by releasing a 7 disc 25th anniversary edition. The 7 discs include:
- Remastering of the 1991 album
- 16 studio outtakes including a version of New Damage featuring Queen's Brian May
- March 6, 1992 concert CD of the band at Seattle's Paramount Theater
- DVD of that concert
- DVD of the Motorvision home video
- Blu-Ray Surround Sound mix of Badmotorfinger
