Tracks from Rancid, Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros, Dropick Murphys, Agnostic Front, and others will be featured on the third volume of Hellcat's budged-priced punk and ska compilation series, "Give 'Em the Boot." The label, an Epitaph imprint run by Rancid's Tim Armstrong, says the previous two albums have collectively sold more than 250,000 units worldwide.

The latest edition -- due Feb. 12 and again priced at $4.98 -- will feature four previously unreleased cuts. Nekromantix, a psychobilly act from Denmark, contributes "Who Killed the Cheerleader;" Devil's Brigade, a side-project from Rancid bassist Matt Freeman, donates "Vampire Girl;" hardcore act the Distillers previews its 2002 release with "Sick of it All;" and Roger Miret and the Disasters, a side-project from the vocalist of Agnostic Front, pitches in with the creatively titled "Give 'Em the Boot."

Rounding out the album are a number of previously released cuts, including Rancid's "Golden Gate Fields," Strummer's "Global a Go-Go," the Dropkick Murphys' "The Legend of Finn MacCumhail," Agnostic Front's "Liberty," and Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards' "Skunx."

The first edition in the "Give 'Em the Boot" series remains its top performer, having penetrated The Billboard 200 for a one-week stint at No. 183. That album was driven by an unreleased Rancid cut, "The Brothrels."
