Rarities 1994–1999 is a collection of rarities and B-sides from rock group Silverchair released in December 2002 by Murmur/Sony Music Entertainment. It was originally a limited edition bonus disc packaged with the compilation, The Best of Volume 1 (December 2000), and was issued as a separate budget-priced album when the two-disc version was discontinued in 2002.[1] The 2002 version featured new Neon Ballroom-themed artwork. As with the earlier collection, the band was not involved in compiling the tracks, having left Sony in early 2000.

Allmusic 2/5 stars[2]

AllMusic's Johnny Loftus rated Rarities 1994–1999 as two out of five and felt it was "non-essential" for fans or even casual listeners of Silverchair, preferring their earlier compilation, The Best of Volume 1, as a retrospective release.[2]
