Kool-Aid is an album by Big Audio Dynamite II. It was their first album under this name and with this line-up, which had been totally changed by the band leader Mick Jones himself in 1990. This was a UK-only release. Several of the songs appeared on the group's next worldwide release, The Globe, albeit in reworked form. Among them is this album's lead-off song "Change of Atmosphere", which was reworked into the group's number 1 hit "Rush".

Trouser Press, said that, "with a relatively loose feel and concept, Kool-Aid is Jones' most diverse outing ever, a limited-edition eight-song stopgap offering two acoustic ballads, acid-dance, techno-rock, Kraftwerk samples and even Laurie Anderson-styled poltergeist vocals, as well as a remixed (and retitled) version of "Free," the band's contribution to the Flashback soundtrack."
