Demolition Man is an EP released by A&M on September 21, 1993 (United States) and November 1, 1993 (UK) in support of the Sylvester Stallone/Wesley Snipes film Demolition Man. It features Sting's re-recording of The Police track "Demolition Man", as well as several live recordings. The live recordings were recorded at Villa Manin, Codroipo, Italy on 25 July 1993. The US[1] and International/European[2] EP release features the title track and five live recordings and sales for this release were listed on the US Albums Chart, as the UK release[3] was a standard single which featured an exclusive single version of the title track as well as the album version and two live recordings. The UK release charted therefore on the UK Singles Chart, where it peaked at number 21.[4]

AllMusic panned the American version in their brief review, claiming that the recordings are "unremarkable" and that the retail price (over $10, nearly as much as most full-length albums retailed for at the time) was inexcusable.[5]
