The 11 Best Wilco B-Sides & Bonus Tracks

It's the 4th of July and all of us Americans go out and celebrate in the one thing that Americans do best...we consume. We eat until we can't move, we drink until we can't stand up, and we end the day staring up at the sky and watch things get blown up good. Only Americans celebrate freedom by indulging in every single freedom at the exact same time. I avoided the BBQs this year...but showed my patriotism by doing the next best American thing...I went to the mall and shopped.

Here are the 11 Best Wilco B-Sides and Bonus Tracks:
1. When The Roses Bloom Again (Chelsea Walls Soundtrack)
2. Magazine Called Sunset (More Like the Moon)
3. True Love Will Find You In The End (A Shot In the Arm)
4. One Hundred Years From Now (Return of the Grievous Angel)
5. Let's Not Get Carried Away (Sky Blue Sky Bonus)
