Notes

Front of sleeve has the red flash "Includes Bonus Track Leave Me Alone".

Disc: Made in Austria.

Very similar to these other pressings:

"Bad" - This version does not have the red flash for the bonus track on the front cover. There are two very subtle differences with the lay-out of text: the art and photography credits go on to 3 lines (not 2) and the bottom rights credits are on 4 lines (not 3). The disc artwork appears identical.

"Bad - This reissue version again does not have the red flash for the bonus track on the front cover. Again there are two very subtle differences with the lay-out of text: the art and photography credits go on to 3 lines (not 2) and the bottom rights credits are on 4 lines (not 3). The disc artwork appears identical apart from just being BIEM not BIEM/STEMRA as here.
