3 Car Garage: The Indie Recordings '95–'96, also known simply as 3 Car Garage, is a compilation album by American pop rock group Hanson. It consists of material from their MMMBop album minus four tracks. There is much confusion that 3 Car Garage contains tracks from both the MMMBop and Boomerang albums, when actually, only songs from MMMBop are present. The tracks that never made it from MMMBop to 3 Car Garage are the shorter version of "MMMBop", "Something New", "Incredible", and "Baby (You're So Fine)".

As the songs on this album were recorded a year or two before Middle of Nowhere, the brothers' voices are noticeably higher pitched. The album also contains the original version of the hit song "MMMBop", which was a rock ballad, unlike the up-tempo pop version that became a hit.
