No One Needs Me - The Rest of the Worst (2009-2011)

ThornBrain is Really Bad at This is a compilation of material from the album BlackholeWhitespace, the EP The Right Way to do Everything, and the "Lost Effort" single, all of which were made unavailable due to Futures Passed Free Music shutting down. The compilation takes what Thorn considers to be the best of the recordings and excludes those he dislikes, he felt are extraneous, or are covers of songs he didn't have rights to. The excluded material was released as a separate free compilation: No One Needs Me - The Rest of the Worst (2009-2011).

The album shares its name and concept with Sawtooth's compilation, Sawtooth Is Really Bad At This - The Best Of The Worst (2003​-​2011).
