Tracklist Hide Credits
The release also exists with a different front cover where the subtitle is "The Best Of". The "Hardcore Will Never Die" version generally had a "The Best Of" sticker on the front of the jewel case, which wasn't found on copies with the "The Best Of" front cover.
There also exists a misprinted version of the back cover that could be combined with either the "The Best Of" or the Hardcore Will Never Die front cover.
This misprint consists in two incorrectly printed horizontal lines at the height of the green "see booklet for details" print. Large parts of these lines have a color much darker than intented, ranging from the left of clown from the Thunderdome VIII cover to the right of the Thunderdome VII snake above the barcode.
There are additional differences between both back cover versions:
* the snake above the barcode is sensibly smaller on the misprint compared to the regular cover;
* on the misprint, CD 3 is listed as being "mixed by: DJ Weirdo & The Radical Master DC", whereas the "&" is missing on the version without misprint, which erroneously suggests that DJ Weirdo and The Radical Master DC are two aliases of the same artist;
* under the Arcade label, the misprint version lists catalog numbers of the 3CD release and of the 3 separate cassette releases; in contrast, the version without misprint only gives the catalog number of the 3CD release, and therefore there is much more spacing between lines of the corresponding text and of the following legal warnings than on the misprint.
On all artwork variations, release title is listed as Thunderdome "The Best Of" on spines and "Thunderdome - Hardcore Will Never Die" on booklet front. On the third disc, the quotes are incorrectly placed in the megamix title ("The Best" Of Megamix instead of "The Best Of" Megamix as on back cover and inside the booklet).
As all versions,
Tracks 1-02, 1-04, 1-11, 1-16, 1-17, 2-01, 2-12, 2-13, 3-15, 3-23 and 3-29 are listed without mix title.
As on Thunderdome II, track 1-05 is listed as "Brainwashkiller ( Killermix)", but is actually neither the "Killermix" nor any other version from the original vinyl (although it is very close to the "Gehirnmix").
Track 1-19 is listed without mix name on back cover. It was also released with Fuckin Hostile or DJ Skinhead as artist name.
Track 2-03 is wrongly listed as "Blood Of An English Muffin (M. Steenbergen Remix)" but it's the original
Track 2-10 title listed as "Dominatin"
Track 2-14 title listed as "Feel The Rythm"
Track 2-16 is the same track that also appeared on H2OH 008 (where Queens Boro Crew is used as artist name), which is slightly different from the same named track on Terror Traxx 26 (where Omar Santana is used as artist name).
Track 3-25 title listed as "Ruff'N Ruggin"
Track 3-26 title listed as "Wake Up The Overdose"
Track 3-34 title listed as "Hypnotising"
Track 3-35 title listed as "Jieehaaaa"
Track 3-36 remix title listed as "DJ Paul & Darrien Kelly OTT Mix"
Track 3-40 title listed as "I Wanna Be A Hippie"
Tracks 2-05, 2-14 & 2-16 are bonus tracks. They don't appear on the previous Thunderdomes. CD 3 is a "The Best Of" Megamix. In the booklet there are no credits listed for track 3-36.
