i believe the first album that had ahidden track at the end of the disk space was 'bang' from the excellent one man band world party (ex-waterboys). that album is from 1993 and in those days it was quite unique and in someway actually daring. but nowadays, come on, its only annoying as hell. just put the damn track as the last track

oh and about my statement that bang is the first album to have one hidden track at the end; please prove me wrong if i am.

Nirvana - Nevermind (1991)
10 minutes after Something In The Way a new "song" starts: Endless Nameless

And I'm sure there are also countless other 'hidden' tracks before that one.

What about the end of Sgt. Pepper's? Is that also a hidden track?

Oh, and one of the Monty Python records even had a whole hidden side (back in the vinyl days)!

C ya!

Marty

(edited to add that Nevermind was released in 1991)

Didn't the original vinyl release of Boy have a short instrumental track hidden after the album ended?That was back in 1980!!!!! I'm pretty sure I downloaded this a few years back. Anyone else hear of this?

AFI's newest album had not one, but 2 hidden songs.

Normally I would be ok with the idea of more bang for the buck, but I hate having to fast forward over 5 mins of dead space to get to what I want to hear. Just put it in the track listing people, please.

It's a ploy to make you think you've got more for your money. It probably started out as a fun thing to do, but those good old marketing boys and girls will have jumped on the gravy train

Cynical I know, but true.

i have a very amusing and quite story behind that hidden track. i won't disclose the details but it did freak my ex and i out one night.

You people must have some really hard lives to be so put off by hidden tracks. I think they're cool.

IIRC, Nine Inch Nails had a special thing done with the bonus track on their Broken and/or Fixed EP (don't know which one exactly). That song was indexed... as number 99! So after the 8 or 10 'regular' songs the CD would go on with track 11, 12, 13 ... 98 where each track was 1 or 2 seconds of silence until it reached #99. Talk about bang for the buck, 99 songs!

C ya!

P.S. Nate Dogg, at the end of Boy (on vinyl) there is indeed a small piece of music. I've got the vinyl album and it's on it.
