"Rarities and B-Sides" is an almost complete compilation of all officially released b-sides, outtakes, and demos by The Smashing Pumpkins. According to EMI, this compilation is 'available as a digital download only and can be found at iTunes or any other digital service provider web-site.' Most of these tracks can be found on previous b-side/live/demo releases, such as, "Pisces Iscariot", "Judas 0", "The Aeroplane Flies High", and "Earphoria". The release is notable however for offering the first digital releases of seven tracks that were previously only available commercially on vinyl.

The songs "Bullet Train To Osaka," "Terrapin," "Siamese Dream," "Purr Snickety," "Not Worth Asking," "Honeyspider II" and "Infinite Sadness" were all only available on vinyl until this release. The original "Honeyspider," as well as, the original single versions of "Tristessa" and "I Am One" were not included on this compilation, because they are owned by Sub Pop Records and not EMI.

The single Rocket, was itself excluded from the compilation, but it does include the b-side "Never Let Me Down" titled as Never Let Me Down Again. This is the only incomplete single missing. Besides that, all singles owned by EMI were included on this compilation.

Also, "My Dahlia" and "Sun", the first commercially issued Smashing Pumpkins recordings, were not included in this compilation, probably due to licensing issues. They appeared on the Light Into Dark vinyl only album, which only had a thousand copies pressed back in 1989.

This digital compilation also does not include the 1989 demo Daughter, which was released as a flexi disc single which was only available to Reflex Magazine subscribers.

Additionally, seven official remixes of Smashing Pumpkins songs were excluded from the compilation. These include "Moby Mix" and "Cement Mix" from the "1979 Mixes" single and the entire "The End Is the Beginning Is the End Remixes" single.

As a result of its use in the trailer for the movie "Watchmen", the track "The Beginning Is the End Is the Beginning" from this compilation reached a peak position of 53 on Billboard's Hot Digital Songs chart during 2008.
