Rare Trax is a compilation album of rare songs by Swedish metal band Meshuggah. It was released on 21 August 2001 by Nuclear Blast. It compiles the three songs from the band's first 1989 release, Meshuggah, along with other rare songs that the band had recorded but never released.

The CD-ROM also contains the music video for the song "New Millennium Cyanide Christ" from Chaosphere, which features the band on a tour bus, air-playing all the instruments (with Jens Kidman yelling into a pen) and headbanging in unison.

"War" was the first Meshuggah song to feature programmed drums. The remix for the song "Concatenation" is a slower version of the song with a different drum beat. The person on the cover and inlay photographs is tour manager Per Wikström.
