The Twilight Sad Killed My Parents and Hit the Road is a limited edition compilation album by Scottishindie rock band The Twilight Sad, released by Fat Cat Records on 8 December 2008. The compilation is composed of live tracks, covers and previously unreleased material, and was made to "help fund their tour with Mogwai" in late 2008. The compilation was limited to 1,000 copies only, and were only made available at live shows, in independent record shops, and at Fat Cat's official website. The CD will not be repressed, but it was made available digitally shortly thereafter.
The album artwork and name are homages to the 1990 Sonic Youth album Goo. According to vocalist James Graham, the Goo pastiche was the idea of guitarist Andy MacFarlane. Graham commented, "[The Twilight Sad] were playing in America with Mogwai [...] and Thurston Moore [came] to the gig. So we were thinking 'fuck' and hoping he didn't see the merchandise table. They haven't sued us though. Yet."
The first six tracks were recorded at the ABC in Glasgow on 9 October 2008. "Untitled #28" and "Untitled #27" were later featured on the band's second studio album, Forget the Night Ahead, as "The Neighbours Can't Breathe" and "The Room," respectively.
