Bonus tracks may come in the form of hidden tracks.

The Top Ten

1 Train in Vain - The Clash

A hidden bonus track that was added to the album "London Calling" at the very last minute and the initial pressings didn't even list the track on the sleeve. - Metal_Treasure

One of my favorite Clash songs. It has a sick guitar solo too. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

2 Lunar Lament - Demons and Wizards

Groovy rhythm, beautiful chorus and lyrics, and perfect vocals (bonus track 2005).

"I'm existing hopelessly 'cause I can't reach the sun
Darkness covers me, my soul has yet to long
I'm looking for serenity 'cause I can't reach the sun

It's all I long for - the heat of the sun
It's all I long for
What I'm wishing for is the blessing of the sun". - Metal_Treasure

3 Distant Memories - Blind Guardian

A great bonus track to a great album (2015). I guess Blind Guardian released this song as a bonus track because it's a mellow song and they didn't want to be accused of not being heavy enough. Metal bands are criticized for the soft songs and Blind Guardian did the right thing. This song is one of the best songs on the album though - it's mellow but not poppy and cheesy. Metal bands should learn from Blind Guardian.
I like the whole song and especially the wonderful melancholy chorus:
"But still they don't know they're just caught in distant memories". - Metal_Treasure

4 Wages of Sin - Theocracy

Bonus track for the Japanese edition only (2008). The album was very good, too. - Metal_Treasure

5 Endless, Nameless - Nirvana

It's actually one of the most destructive and it's one of my favorites - FettiMC

One of my favorites by the band, actually. - Alpha101

The Newcomers

? Son of Alerik - Deep Purple
? The Mind of Les - Limp Bizkit

This isn't a song but it's a guy screaming and ranting about how music on the radio sucks and says we need some rock and its pretty funny and the irony is this might be one of Limp Bizkits Best Songs and its not even a song - christangrant
