Gorillaz - G Sides: Wikipedia Album Entry

G-Sides is a B-sides collection by Gorillaz, featuring the additional tracks from their first three singles and the Tomorrow Comes Today EP. The compilation was originally released only in Japan in December 2001. The US edition (with slightly different track list) followed in February 2002. The European version, released in March 2002, features the original track list and the Brazilian release includes all the songs from both the Japanese and the US version. All versions have the same cover, featuring Noodle holding a skeleton doll resembling Jack Skellington in her hand, except for the Japanese and Canadian versions, which have her holding a Godzilla figurine instead.

G-Sides reached #65 on the UK Album Chart and #84 on the US Billboard 200.
