The only one I know of is the Best of 1980 - 1990 b-sides...but I sure don't know everything!

I don't think so. Not an offical one, or something. You can take a look discogs.com.

Not on CD. Complete U2 was on iTunes but your best bet now is collections​ on Spotify.

i beg you, please dont buy bootlegs of the b-sides. the 80s best of, 90s best of and the box sets are your best bets. honestly you can find the rest <those don't include ALL the b-sides, if you mean remixes/live cuts> relatively easily at used cds stores. the 80s singles are kinda hard to find but the rest are ridiculously easy to find.

No easy way out here.  You can get good used CDs for cheap though.  I mean I had to spring for a copy of Million Dollar Hotel soundtrack in order to get Stateless and Ground Beneath Her Feet

Your not going to get them all. Collecting is a black hole.

I bought the soundtrack without ever having watched the movie.  Aside from those two tracks-songs that I love- I'm kinda ho-hum about the rest of it.  The First Time is good, but that's an album track.  Other songs aren't really U2 - I think it's the Million Dollar Hotel Band?  I think that's why I wasn't incredibly enthused about buying it - I felt like I was only getting two U2 songs.

trust me i get that, but i was 18 and SO DRUNK ON U2! i had just gotten into them and couldn't buy their cds/singles fast enough. i still love TGBHF and Stateless is good. yea the rest sucks, one or two of the Bono solo songs are good though.

If you don't have yellow version of x released in Guam in 1982 you don't have them all.
