Bad News is the self-titled debut album from British heavy metal group Bad News released in October 1987 by EMI. The album features a cover of the famous Queen song "Bohemian Rhapsody" and was produced by Queen's guitarist Brian May. "Bohemian Rhapsody" was released as a single along with music video created for it, written and directed by Adrian Edmondson, who portrays Vim Fuego in the group. The video was released as a video single by Picture Music International.

The eventual release of Bad News Week (Fac 157) in May 1987 was marred by disaster. Priming a joke that misfired badly, Factory's publicists informed trade paper Music Week that the new Section 25 single was a cover of a 1965 hit, Good News Week, by industry pundit Jonathan King. In June 2009 Section 25 released their sixth studio album, Nature + Degree, featuring new bassist Stuart Hill and with guest vocals on four tracks by Bethany Cassidy, daughter of Larry and Jenny. Steve Stringer now moved on to guitar. Self-produced, this well-received set again combined electro, postpunk and post-rock styles, and was launched with an appearance at the WGT festival in Leipzig.

A fast-selling album is defined as one with high sales in its first chart week following release. The highest sales achieved in any country in an album's debut week are . 8 million for 25 by Adele in the United States in the week ending November 26, 2015. This passed the previous record of . 0 million set by the album Distance by Hikaru Utada in Japan in 2001. This is a list of the fastest-selling albums in Canada since Nielsen SoundScan tracking began in 1995.

Bad News Week was also released as a 12" single, remixed by Bernard Sumner. Section 25 then fell silent for more than a decade, although their entire back catalogue was reissued on CD on LTM as well as an archive DVD, So Far. There have also been several live and rarity CDs released by the same label. In 2001 the band regrouped and started composing new material  . MP3 Invicta EP (digital) – 4 tracks.

In April, Section 25 will release a new live album, Al Fresco, and will play a few England dates before beginning work on their ninth studio album. We spoke with Vincent and Bethany about how Hit finally became a hit. Related. How did Blackpool influence Section 25’s sound? Vincent: Blackpool is basically a Victorian seaside resort with piers and Venetian arcades and that sort of stuff. Amusements for the masses, shall we say.

After taking a seven-year hiatus from the music business, Justin Timberlake crooned his way back to the Billboard charts this week, selling a whopping 968,000 copies of The 20/20 Experience in its first week of release. Those numbers make it one of the fastest-selling records of all time, or more accurately, since Soundscan started tracking sales in 1991. Keep in mind that albums like Eminem's The Eminem Show and Whitney Houston's soundtrack for The Bodyguard sold over a million copies in weeks other than their first. We're only talking about projects that sold massively out the gate. These are The 25 Biggest First-Week Album Sales in Music History.
