The 2012 rarities compilation, Stop Us If You've Heard This One Before! collects live and unreleased cuts recorded between 1992 and 2003 by the Canadian rock band Barenaked Ladies. Included are such songs as a 1996 demo version of "Old Apartment," a 1994 live recording of "Shake Your Rump," a 1998 remix of "One Week," and a handful of unreleased songs including "Half a Heart" from 2000, a 2002 demo of "Long While," and others. Originally planned as a companion piece to 2011's greatest-hits compilation Hits from Yesterday & the Day Before, Stop Us If You've Heard This One Before! turns out to be a pleasant single-disc collection of cuts that should appeal to longtime fans or work as a nice introduction to the band.
