    2. U2 - "The Best Of 1980-1990": "October" (appears on track 14, 1 minute after "All I Want Is You" has ended)

    3. Bon Jovi - "100.000.000 Bon Jovi Fans Can't Be Wrong": "Livin' On A Prayer" (demo) (appears on track 13 of disc 4, a few seconds after "Nobody's Hero" has ended)

    4. Guns N' Roses - "The Spaghetti Incident?": "Look At Your Game, Girl" (appears on track 12, a few seconds after "I Don't Like You" has ended)

    5. Rammstein - "Reise, Reise" (CD version only): Hidden track in the pre-gap

    6. Various - "No Alternative": Nirvana's "Sappy"/ retitled "Verse Chorus Verse" (appears as a separate track at the end of the album)

    I found these lists years ago when I was trying to find a resource for locating all the tracks hidden in the pre-gap on CDs in my collection. I didn't want to try to find them one-by-one, since I had about 10,000 CDs at the time!

    Thankfully, with EAC, I've been able to rip all the CDs with songs hidden in the pre-gap and put them in my digital music library. Finding songs hidden at the end of albums is much easier, but it's still nice to have a good list to check to make sure I haven't overlooked anything when ripping a CD.

    For those who like folk - Lucy Kaplansky's CD, "Flesh and Bone" has a hidden track at the BEGINNING of the CD! It's a cover of the Beatles' "I've Just Seen a Face". It is accessed by inserting the disc, pressing play, then immediately holding down the "rewind" button until it reaches the beginning of the bonus track. Why they did it in this bizarre fashion is beyond me. She eventually released the track again on a reissue of "The Tide".

    I see now from an earlier post about tracks hidden in the pre-gap this was more common than I thought

    Hidden tracks, along with post-credit scenes in movies, need to stopped.

    Manic Street Preachers have 3 albuns with hidden tracks: know your Enemy, send away the tigers and jornal for plague lovers.
    The first 4 placebo albuns have hidden tracks also.
    This was a pretty common thing in the 90's

    Funny bits from the drummer before and after takes of songs at the end of the Scott Henderson album Tore Down House, maybe 45 secs after the last song is over.

    :kilroy: Every CD in EMI's "Legendary Masters" series has one. It's how I found out that The Old Seekers did a coke commercial years before the much more famous one by The New Seekers.

    I think this is the Ash album which also has a hidden track at the start of the album (and which is actually a song...)

    Nothing beats the band "Kiss My Jazz" from Belgium: they have a hidden album (not a hidden track, a whole album !) in the pre-gap of the first track of one of their albums :)
    Kiss My Jazz - In A Service Station

    The list on Wikipedia mentions Mastodon's Blood Mountain ("fan letter" from Josh Homme), but not their first album Remission which also has a hidden track 1 min. after "Elephant Man" consisting of 1:25 of pure noise (sounding somewhat like crashing waves or the bottom of a waterfall).
