Four Thousand Seven Hundred and Sixty-Six Seconds – A Short Cut to Teenage Fanclub

Four Thousand Seven Hundred And Sixty-Six Seconds - A Short Cut To Teenage Fanclub is a greatest hits album by Scottish alternative rock band Teenage Fanclub, released on 3 February 2003. The title refers to the album's total length, just 34 seconds short of the maximum running time possible on a single CD: as a consequence the track "My Uptight Life" was edited from its original version in order to fit on to the album.
