EMI, in celebration of their 100th anniversary, released a special edition of ''Viva Hate'' in the UK in 1997. In addition to featuring brand new artwork, including a new cover shot by Eamonn McCabe, the Centenary Edition features 8 bonus tracks — only one of which was contemporaneous with the album. Surprisingly, "[[Hairdresser On Fire]]" does not appear on this version despite originally appearing on the North American version of the album as a bonus track.

On 02 April 2012, a newly remastered special edition of ''Viva Hate'', supervised by Stephen Street, was released. Controversially, Morrissey chose to omit one of the album's original tracks, "[[The Ordinary Boys]]," and include the session demo "[[Treat Me Like A Human Being]]." In addition to the track list changes, the intro and extended fadeout of "[[Late Night, Maudlin Street]]" has been edited. The original album artwork was restored for this release, however, the typeface font on the front cover has been changed, as was the case with the 2011 [[Bona Drag]] remaster.
