    In my opinion, even if it's not an actual album, it's their best.

    I've had this on my computer for so long, and it has always confused me. I've managed to track down the original albums for most of the tracks (I'm trying to sort out my iTunes), but I can't find the original homes for 337 or Mini Trucks Suck. I also have covers of We Bite by the Misfits and No Reason by Minor Threat which I had as being from Weight Of Words but aren't listed here. Help?

    I wish I had some of these songs. I have everything else otherwise

    These are some great B-sides and rarities but Hearts Frozen Solid,... was recorded purely for the Short Music for Short People compilation and My Michelle was for the Punk Goes Metal comp. I'm pretty sure this is a fan-created list. The Retrospective album was created without AFI's participation.

    What makes the retrospective not exist? That it wasn't official? Because it was, even if the band didn't want to do it and they didn't like the tracklisting. But yeah, this is a good collection. I had a playlist like this a while ago, but it went the opposite way: old to new.

    Well, even if it doesn't exist, it's a nice collection that I quite enjoy listening to.

    or even worse, that fan burned it to a CD-R and sold it on eBay.

    this record does not exist. It's made up by some fan. Some fan just put all the b-sides and rarities together and then uploaded a torrent of it or something like that. I mean, 337 isn't even a real song. It was the little clip playing on their first DU-related website. That and Mini Trucks Suck are the only songs you cannot purchase.

    I have it on my computer, so it must exist somewhere

    Can anyone tell me where or how I can get this album? If you know where to get the other B-Sides and Rarities on too that would be awesome.
