Bootlegged in Japan is a live album from British extreme metal band Napalm Death, released in June 1998 through Earache.[3]


The album features a concert from the 5 August 1996 at the Liquid Rooms, Tokyo. It was recorded as a bootleg and after the band received the recording, they found it was good enough to release it as an actual and official live album.[4] In the inlay of the album the band wrote:

The official release of this album was prompted by the fact that we found anonymous bootleg tapes of the '96 Tokyo show coming from Japan, and felt that the recording captured the true uncompromising live spirit of Napalm Death.

Bootlegged in Japan was part of a 3 CD set together with the album Diatribes and the EP Greed Killing Earache re-released in 2010.[5]
