AllMusic Review by

In true punk rock fashion, Portland-based party dudes Mean Jeans like to put out singles, and they've released enough 7"s on various underground labels that most of the band's fans have had a hard time tracking them all down. But Mean Jeans completists rejoice! The band has heard your cries and responded with Singles, a 20-song collection of the single sides, compilation tracks, and scattered covers that didn't appear on the group's first two albums. Singles brings together plenty of fast, loud, and purposefully goofy numbers that haven't appeared on LP before, along with one special previously unreleased track. Featuring tunes like "Stoned to the Bone," "I Think U Stink," "Freaked & Geeked," "Cool 2 Drive," and "I Miss Outer Space," Singles is a great way for Mean Jeans fans to catch up on the stray tracks they've missed, as well as a solid and snarky introduction to the group's early work.
