The accompanying booklet is particularly meaty, as band members Mac McCaughan, Jim Wilbur, Laura Ballance and Jon Wurster weigh in with what they remember (or don't remember) about the songs. The song "Does Your Hometown Care?" was on the soundtrack to the 1997 film Suburbia.

Superchunk has released Cup of Sand, their 2003 singles and rarities compilation on vinyl for this first time. The notes have been expanded to comprise the three additional songs from out-of-print compilations which have been added to this remastered reissue.

Superchunk has been at it for a long, long time, 14 years when Cup of Sand, a double-disc (25 tracks) roundup of singles, B-sides, rarities, and unreleased songs recorded between 1992 and 2002, was released in 2003. Through its entire career the band has maintained a steady track record, having never put out a record that is anything less than first-rate indie rock. This disc is no different. It is jam-packed full of songs that deserved to be collected under one roof, and has funny and insightful liner-note remembrances from the four bandmembers

Conventional wisdom cheekily held that every 'Chunk song sounded the same, mostly due to their constant barrage of inhumanly massive power riffs and McCaughan's nasal, forever-thirteen conviction, but as often as not, sheer enthusiasm covered for any perceived lack of musical invention  . The theory is readily supported by Cup of Sand, where no track sounds out of place or unexpected because of the chaotic balance struck out of necessity, by sheer virtue of the dozens of releases and almost as many years from which these songs are culled.

All the great songs and lyrics from the "Cup of Sand" album ont he Web's largest and most authoritative lyrics resource. Superchunk is an American indie rock band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, consisting of singer/guitarist Mac McCaughan, guitarist Jim Wilbur, bassist Laura Ballance, and drummer Jon Wurster. Formed in 1989, they were one of the bands that helped define the Chapel Hill music scene of the 1990s.

Many of the songs on Cup of Sand are here because they didn’t fit the flow of an album, rather than because they weren’t good enough. Likewise, the band doesn’t just cover songs by musicians who have influenced them, they try to make these songs their own. David Bowie’s Scary Monsters goes from a subdued art-house romp to an off-kilter Southern indie masterpiece, rounded out by frontman Mac McCaughan’s always scratchy but loveable vocal delivery
