The songs that don't always fit on the Best Of, get overlooked on setlists... but always end up being a secret favourite for a lot of fans.

  1. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Other Side

    A touch more introspective to what we're used to from the Chilis, this track needs your attention a bit more.

  2. Oasis - The Hindu Times

    The pseudo-Indian riff is one of the high points of this late-period Oasis tune.

  3. Arctic Monkeys - Riot Van

    A fan favourite - but would it ever get on the Greatest Hits when we get to one? It should do.

  4. Foo Fighters - Hey Johnny Park!

    An often-overlooked track from the massive Colour And The Shape album. Enjoy those dynamics!

  5. Blur - Sing

    Swooning piano-led song that got more attention when it turned up in Trainspotting.

  6. Nirvana - Sliver

    Just before they went stellar with Nevermind, the trio issued this raucous tune as a single.

  7. The Killers - On Top

    Off the mega-selling debut album Hot Fuss, this is an intriguing album track.

  8. The Smiths - That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore

    When you have a singles back catalogue like Morrissey and Marr, some things have to fall by the wayside - but this Meat Is Murder track deserves more acclaim.

  9. Coldplay - Don't Panic

    Famous to anyone who bought Parachutes back in the day, this wistful album opener is a touching alternative to Chris Martin's stadium-sized songs.

  10. The Charlatans - Then

    Ponderous minor key entry in Tim Burgess and co's early years - overshadowed by the baggy shuffle of The Only One I Know, it's worth a re-listen.
