Hardcore fans of Say Anything know that before their highly-acclaimed debut album …Is A Real Boy came out in 2005, the band recorded a massive amount of demos and unreleased music. These songs were spread across three projects from the band, Baseball, Junior Varsity EP, and Menorah/Mejora. Before 2013 you couldn’t not find these releases anywhere. Unless, of course, you were one of the lucky ones who had the opportunity to pick up a copy from the band in their early days. Perhaps in a basement, bar, or someone’s living room house show. In 2013, Say Anything released a compilation album titled All My Friends Are Enemies: Early Rarities. It boasted a whopping 45 tracks, including all songs from the three previously mentioned projects.

The craziest part is, people KNEW these songs. Although they were not officially available on streaming services, the tunes were being traded underground like a drug. Tracks like “The Last Great Punk Rock Song“, “Showdown at P-Town“, and “Try To Remember, Forget” were staples among a wildly dedicated fanbase. Two songs, “A Walk Through Hell“, and “I Want To Know Your Plans” were so popular that they ended up being re-recorded for Say Anything’s debut album. Shortly after this release, the band even embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime Rarities Tour with support from Eisley.
