9. Incidental Music (1995)
Characteristic of a group as gifted and prolific as Superchunk, there are a number of great compilations and extras available to fans including the Clambakes Series, 1992's Tossing Seeds, 2003's Cup of Sand and sundry terrific contributions to not-for-profit releases. 1995's Incidental Music deserves special notice, collecting a remarkable amalgam of discarded originals, cover songs and other curios that speak volumes to the group's breadth of influence. The cover of The Magnetic Fields' "100,000 Fireflies" and the Verlaines' "Lying in State" are worth the price of admission alone, and McCaughan's "Home at Dawn" is one of the best originals he's ever written.
