I understand that most people prefer albums over singles I do too. There is some singles that are just really great and actually really represent the band very well. There are also great singles that may not represent the band at all but are still great songs regardless. What are your guys favorite singles. A few of mine below...

Joy Division-Digital

Belly-Gepetto

This singles really represents the faster pace half of this album, and a great tune.

APB-Something to Believe In

This is one of those singles that don't really represent an album well(the other tracks are more up to speed and bass is everywhere) but is still a great pop song in my opinion.

    the singles i actualy bought are from like blink 182, sum 41, nickelback, a few hardcore metalcore bands and green day.

    i dont buy albums cuz the music beside the best songs or singles usually isnt even very good. singles are great cuz theyre written for good audiences and are worth a lot. thats why theyre good and on the radio

    Really? One of the most radio-played songs ever was NOT a single. Most singles are not really great anyway.

    Anyway, my favorite singles that are NOT on albums are:

    New Divide- Linkin Park
    I Dissapear- Metallica
