Question about a Luck Song

Sandra asks…

Where do I find the Oingo Boingo song “Better Luck Next Time”?

I heard it on “Dead Band’s Party”, an Oingo Boingo tribute, performed by Plain White T’s, and I really liked it…I searched for the two least-heard-by-me Boingo albums (So-Lo & Good For Your Soul) on Amazon and according to them the song isn’t on there. I’ve heard all the other Oingo Boingo albums, even the 4 song EP from 1980, so where the heck is it? Was/is it a bootleg only song or something?
