The Rutabega/Owen Split EP is a split album between Owen and The Rutabega. It was originally released on Backroad Records. After falling out of print, it was re-released on June 8, 2004 on Polyvinyl Records. The Owen song "Never Meant" was originally performed by Mike Kinsella's former band American Football. The song "Poor Souls" was re-recorded for this split. It differs from the original version that appeared on No Good For No One Now in a few aspects, including some changed lyrics and the addition of horns.
