Another instant legend. The first 1,000 of these were on green vinyl. There were also black ones pressed in this first batch. These green and black copies contained printed inner sleeves that served as inserts (one side of this sleeve contained lyrics). Later, there was another black batch made, but these had different labels and contained no inner sleeve insert. As far as I am aware, the original black labels (the ones that came with the printed inner sleeve) had one label that was a picture of the band. In place of this label was an image of a six-pack of cans on the later pressing. Also released in Germany on Glitterhouse.

In 2019, Sub Pop released a deluxe edition double LP version of Rehab Doll, which included demos and rarities. The Loser Edition was on lime green marble vinyl in the U.S. and a translucent green vinyl in Europe. It was also released on black vinyl. Then, there was a special translucent lime green version, which was exclusive to the Ten Club and East Street Records in Seattle. This has proven to be the most difficult find of the batch of re-presses.
