A's, B's and Rarities is an album by the band Fun Lovin' Criminals. It was released by their former label EMI Chrysalis, and collects a large number of rarities from their time with the label, although not all of them (it is notably missing the B-Side "Special Dedication" from Loco CD1).

"Blues For Suckers", "Sleepyhead", "The Ballad Of Larry Davis" were non-album B-Sides, although "Blues For Suckers" is a schmoove version of "Bear Hug" from the band's album Come Find Yourself. In addition "The Beach", "Searching For Clues" and "Battle On The Golf Course" are previously unreleased full length versions of songs recorded for the band's Maui Homicide 2000 soundtrack. Excerpts from each, as well as some otherwise unreleased tracks, were included on "Maui Homicide 2000 [Medley]", one of the B-Sides of the Run Daddy Run/Bump single. The full soundtrack has not been released, but also includes "Special Dedication" (from the B-Side to Loco) and "Kill The Bad Guy" (hidden track on the album Loco).
