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

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.

Agreed. It's a black hole. Took almost 20 years but I have every album release (vinyl/cd) and most of the cd/vinyl singles (though not international variants). Just completed the original 12 inch vinyl singles for JT.  But the Australian single OTH (? I think) still eludes me as does ROK Fire. I love the hunt but it can get crazy. Be warned.  Lol!!

Discogs and Ebay are your friend. I gave up a long time ago then both of those sites happened and I doubled my collection. I got OTH at least 25 years after release.

I get with the proliferation of random remixes and live stuff, it's hard to find all the more recent b-sides and stuff, but the deluxe versions of Boy, October, War, TUF, and TJT should all come with the complete b-sides for each album.  AB comes darn close, barring a few remixes, I think.  But there's way too much material to fit on a single CD, anyway.

\NLOTH had tons of remixes/live stuff and the song NLOTH 2. Winter and Soon were released on vinyl only. Or maybe Winter wasn't released? i dont remember the story on that, outside if being on the Linear DVD.

Yeah, I admittedly lost interest in the b-sides after ATYCLB, though I did download a few from HTDAAB, U218, and NLOTH 2 when I saw I could get them on iTunes for a buck a piece.

Not sure if it fits the B-Sides catgegory completely but the fan club CD "Medium, Rare & Remastered" featured some great B-Sides like "Fast Cars" and "Neon Lights."  It was a fan club exclusive so I'm not sure how hard it is to track down.

obviously you aren't missing much. Winter, Soon and Crystal Ballroom are the best non-album tracks of the past decade.

I did get the version on SOI with the bonus tracks. I just have NLOTH 2 from that album...I'd consider getting the ones you mentioned if they were available, but I'm not much a fan of that album/era.
