Template:Album ratings (MIA): The Complete Anthology is a reissue of nearly everything recorded by Germs from the very first 2-track recordings in 1977 to the last efforts of the classic lineup in 1980, namely six songs done for the film Cruising. Only one song, "Lion's Share", was ever actually released on the soundtrack. This comes close to being the complete Germs studio discography, but it does not include the three studio tracks included on the 1979 Tooth and Nail compilation released on Upsetter Records (which are alternate versions of "Manimal", "Dragon Lady" and "Strange Notes"), the slightly extended version of "Round and Round" and alternate studio version of "Lexicon Devil" which appear on the What We Do Is Secret EP.
