Wiki

We Are The Champions Of The World: The Best Of is a compilation album of material by the Chicago punk rock band The Lawrence Arms. Released on March 30th, 2018 by Fat Wreck Chords, it spans the band's entire career, and includes songs that were released on Fat Wreck Chords, Asian Man Records, and Epitaph Records. It concludes with 5 non-album tracks taken from recording sessions for the 2006 album Oh! Calcutta!, four of which were previously unreleased on any format.

The title of the album is supposed to be ironic. In an interview with Alternative Press, singer Brendan Kelly stated that We Are the Champions of the World is actually not a greatest hits album, but rather a compilation album attempting to be representative of the musical evolution the band has gone through. The idea of putting out We Are the Champions of the World comes from Fat Wreck Chords owner and NOFX singer Fat Mike.

"I think you have to have hits to make a greatest hits, so we approached the song selection in an attempt to be indicative of our evolution, rather than focus on our "hits," of which, frankly, there are none."

— Brendan Kelly
