Besides is the final release from 90's alternative rock band Sugar. As the title suggests, it collected the various B-sides from their previously released singles. The album also contained live and remixed versions of existing tracks from the band's two full albums and one EP, as well as several studio and live versions of tracks that had been unavailable on any of their previous albums.
The CD also included a QuickTime video for the single "Gee Angel", although this was not advertised on the CD packaging.
The first 25,000 copies of Besides were packaged with a bonus disc titled The Joke Is Always on Us, Sometimes. The disc is a live Sugar concert from November 2, 1994, at First Avenue club in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
