The E.P. Compilation is a Refused compilation album originally released in 1997. The album, which consists of songs from Refused's EPs, was reissued in 1999 as This Album Contains Old Songs & Old Pictures, Vol. 1. A different edition was released in 2002 and reissued in 2004.

Overview[edit]

The 2002 and 1997 versions are very different. Although they both contain most of Refused's singles, the 1997 version contains many rarities, such as the Misfits cover "Bullet," to which Epitaph was unable to secure the rights for 2002 re-release.
