*Mentioned once by Conjure One on October 9th 2012 [https://twitter.com/conjure_one/status/255731073496014848], this collab might actually be a serious thing again after this Benno tweet on November 17th 2016 [https://twitter.com/BennoDeGoeij/status/799339632156610560] and this Retweet by the end of January 2017 [https://twitter.com/rhysfulber/status/825029775798308865]

*During their live performances at EDC Las Vegas and Nature One over the course of summer 2012, the guys performed an unknown track with a gritty bassline. You can find it here, it's the track right after 'Dutch Force - Deadline': [http://soundcloud.com/edmtunestv/rank-1-live-at-electric-daisy-carnival-las-vegas-06-09-2012]. In 2013, at the Dutch Dance Classics event "Back In The House" they performed this track live in its longest form so far.

10. BPM: ??? | Key: ? ??? | ??:??

*In this interview [http://pureblissvocals.blogspot.nl/2011/05/interview-with-jeza-jess-bennett.html], Jeza mentioned she'd be working with Rank 1 in the near future. As of January 2017, nothing has been revealed about the state of this collaboration though and sadly the PureBlissVocal site no longer directs to this interview.

Rank 1 vs. Jochen Miller - The Great Escape (Rank 1 Remix)
Rumor | Possibly cancelled

09. BPM: ??? | Key: ? ??? | ??:??

Unreleased | Unknown
Revealed: 2009
Created: 2009
08. BPM: ??? | Key: ? ??? | ??:??

*The reasons as to why this mash-up was never released are unknown. It was most likely meant to spice up the sets.

Ton T.B. - Evolve As One (Rank 1 Remix)
Rumor | Possible tracklist error
Mentioned: 2007
07. BPM: ??? | Key: ? ??? | ??:??

*When the Trance Energy 2007 compilation was about to be released, this site [http://www.liquid-motion.nl/news.php?item.1940.7] mentioned that it would contain a Rank 1 Remix of Ton TB's 'Evolve As One'. Whether this was merely a mistake or a 'slip of the tongue' is unknown.

Rank 1 - 2 Drunk 2 Funk
Rumor | Possible album track
Mentioned: 2006
06. BPM: ??? | Key: ? ??? | ??:??

*Was an album track at one stage during 2006, as mentioned here [http://www.dontstayin.com/uk/london/heaven/2006/feb/10/article-1211]. Sadly, no more info about this track is available.

Rank 1 - Brairwave (Rank 1 Mash-up)
Unreleased | Unknown
Revealed: 2006 (ASOT #250, in the Asta -The Hague)
Created: 2006
05. BPM: ??? | Key: ? ??? | ??:??

*The reasons as to why this mash-up was never released are unknown. It was most likely meant to spice up the sets.

Rank 1 - Untitled [Hardstyle] Track
Unreleased | Experimental
Revealed: 2004 (ASOT #147, ID&T Radio)
Created: Possibly 1999/2000
04. BPM: ??? | Key: ? ??? | ??:??

*During their ASOT #147 interview the guys explained that this was never released because it was an experimental track. Piet said they had "the harder work" in mind while creating this track. Soundwise it's similar to "Jonah - Sssst... Listen", only harder. I guess this track would be as old as 1999/2000?

Gouryella - Ligaya (Rank 1 Remix)
Unreleased | Cancelled after being postponed
Revealed: 2002 (Rank 1 set at Go!Park)
Created: 2002
03. BPM: ??? | Key: ? ??? | ??:??

*This Remix was never released since the Ligaya release pack coincided with the making of the Symsonic Album's title track and the guys gave priority to their album. [http://www.ivibes.nu/index.php?article=1294] They played it as the Retro Record in Radio Rush Episode #007.

Chakra - Home (Rank 1 Remix)
Unreleased | Rejected
Revealed: 2004 (ASOT #147, ID&T Radio)
Created: 2000
02. BPM: ??? | Key: ? ??? | ??:??

*During their ASOT #147 interview the guys explained that this was never released because the label bosses thought the break was too long. Piet & Benno shortened it but didn't like the result so the release was blown off. They played it as the Retro Record in Radio Rush Episode #005.

Rank 1 vs. Marco V & Benjamin Bates - Untitled Track
Unreleased | Just for fun
Revealed: 2000 (Marcel Woods Marco V at Trance Energy 2000 set)
Created: 2000
01. BPM: ??? | Key: ? ??? | ??:??

*According to Piet [http://www.dontstayin.com/uk/london/heaven/2006/feb/10/article-1211] this was never released because the four guys merely wanted it as an extra in their sets. As he said: "It shouldn't always be about the money". On Youtube this track is usually titled "Surprisingly" or "(The) Awakening". They also performed this track live at Sensation 2001.
