Which band(s) never released a Best of?

Postby GoogaMooga » 10 May 2019, 07:13

There can't be that many. Only AC/DC comes to mind. Yesterday I was really happy to discover a Radiohead best of in thrift. FINALLY I could get rid of "Pablo Honey" and still keep "Creep".

The soundtrack of Iron Man 2 is effectively a best of AC/DC.

9/10 indie rock bands?

Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

It would be interesting to see how many bands/artists didn't release a "Best Of" whilst they were still together.

Genesis. Their first official hits collection was released after their final album.

None of them official though.

They were apparently going to issue one in 78 and changed their minds at the last minute.

I made one for the Fuck-Off Greatest Hits collection we did a number of years ago.
I'm uploading it to your dropbox.
It needs re-doing.
In fact AC/DC will be my next upgrade mp3 set, I think.

The '12 Of The Best' cassette was officially released in Australia and the 'Greatest Hits 30th Anniversary' was officially released in Canada.

Granted there is no official, global greatest hits.
