"Rant and Roar" is an album by Great Big Sea. Released in 1998 only to the USA, it is a compilation of some of the tracks from "Up" and "Play" also by Great Big Sea. This album was created because the band wanted to expand beyond their mostly Canadian fan base. The album's title comes from the first line of the traditional song "The Ryans and the Pittmans", which is generally more well known than the song's actual name.
