Default CD Misprint

I purchased Foo Fighters' "One By One" retail CD from Amazon. (UPC 078636800820). The actual disc is a plain disc (i.e. no art) with the following text:
Quote:
Foo Fighters
Times Like These
(Acoustic Version)
RSP-52367-2
The jewel case has the correct One By One booklet and j-card.

The disc content is correct and it's an "enhanced" CD with the Macromedia Flash software, etc. Windows Media Player identifies it correctly as "One By One".

Has anyone else seen this? I'm sure Amazon would exchange it for me, but it's not worth the hassle.

As strange as it sounds, don't feel special There was a thread about the same misprint weeks ago. I'll try to look for it.

EDIT: Here ya go Mismatched disc with One by One
I'm curious about what happened with that batch.

Yep, mine too. I still haven't gotten a legitimate answer why it happened. Oh well.

Usually misprints become collectible/valuable, feel lucky!

I found an oddity on my WL CD. When I play it on my laptop with Windows Media, the first song title comes up as "Bridge Is Burning". When I play it in the car, the first song comes up as "Bridge Burning". Thought that was kinda amuzing. Anyone else seen something like this?

I agree, these are like misprinted money, worth far more than they would have normally been, I would hold on to those copies.

It sounds like it's widespread enough that I wonder if they're all that rare.
