* Tool takes this UpToEleven on their album ''10,000'' by requiring three songs to be played together to hear the actual song. If the listener places ''Wings of Marie'' then ''Virginti Tres'' in that order on top of ''10,000'' you get to hear the full song instead of three tracks that would otherwise just sound like a bunch of noise building up over time.

* The US edition of Music/OKGo's ''Oh No'' has the unlisted final track "9027 km" - it's [[LeaveTheCameraRunning 35 minutes of the sound of Damian Kulash's girlfriend sleeping]]. The band justified its inclusion on the album as a "love note" recording that she had sent him while he was away recording and he decided to include for artistic reasons; In fact, the track was hastily produced AlbumFiller, with the purpose of using up the remaining CD data not taken up by the album proper and leaving no room for [[CopyProtection DRM software]].

* The U.S. edition of ''Return To Cookie Mountain'' by TV On The Radio has a somewhat unusual variation on this. The main album is indexed as tracks 1-11, and three bonus tracks are listed on the back cover but still placed after multiple short, silent tracks... There's still sort of something hidden though: the listed bonus tracks are tracks 27-29, but there's also some audio on track 26: A short untitled collage of StudioChatter and instruments being tuned up.

At its most basic, the Hidden Track is just a song on the album that isn't on the playlist. However, musicians have sometimes played further tricks in order to play into the fact that they are rewards for faithful listeners who listen all the way through the album. Some have hidden it several minutes after the last listed song after some dead time. With {{Compact Disc}}s and digital technology, people have been able to play further tricks by hiding them in a Track 0 spot, or making them only accessible by computer or only when playing all the way through continuously.

* One edition of Music/TheRamones' ''[[LiveAlbum Loco Live]]'' has a version of "Carbona Not Glue" that went unlisted and was indexed on the same track as "Pet Sematary", which was track 17 of a 32 track album [[note]]The other version of the album does not include the song at all[[/note]]. There was actually a legal reason for this: "Carbona Not Glue" was [[MissingEpisode originally deleted from]] their album ''Music/LeaveHome'' because of a potential lawsuit, as Carbona is a trademarked brand of cleaning solvent. Though ''Loco Live'' was released 14 years later, apparently there was still enough risk that they had to try to sneak it by.
