In your opinion, what songs do you think could have been singles/popular if they had been released today or had been touched up a bit?

My vote goes to Dirty Magic. The sound of this song is so unique. If the lyrics were cleaned up a bit (in terms of clearness), I think it could be a single.

Runner up is Genocide. When I listen to it my next thought is TKAA. Both have an awesome guitar line to start and a catchy sound.

What are your choices?

I'll take on song from each album (since Ignition, as on ST no song is appropriate for a single, IMO - it doesn't mean that I don't like them ;) ):

Ignition: Dirty Magic
Smash: What happened to you
Ixnay: Amazed
Americana: Have you ever
CO1: Dammit, I changed again
Splinter: The Noose

The Noose is a great song, but I think that Lightening Rod would be a better single...

i think Spare Me the Details would be a great single for splinter. fresh sound that appeals to a wide audience.

Spare Me The Details was a radio-only single in Australia. I doubt it's coming to the US.

S/T - I'll Be Waiting
Ignition - Session
Smash - Bad Habit
Ixnay On The Hombre - Amazed
Americana - Staring At The Sun

Spare Me The Details was a radio single, but It never got played anyway, so I"m including it. It should have a video.

I agree with this person about ST. There is no song on there that could be a single, but's it's an okay album - even though it's my least favorite.

Anywayyy.

Smash - What Happened To You
Ixnay - Way Down The Line
Americana - Walla Walla/Americana

The only one that I think could do well is Bad Habit, with some decent marketting and a great video to back it up.

Dirty Magic would be no good in its current state, but with a fresh recording and some new (mild) effects it could do really well. Possible track for next album?

That's why a lot of radio stations play it and it lists it on the new sticker on Smash when you see it in the stores.
It says on the sticker "Hey hey! This one's got Come Out and Play, Self Esteem, Gotta Get Away, and Bad Habit!"

i think walla walla would have made a great hit...along with no breaks, staring at the sun, special delivery, living in chaos, dammit i changed again, amazed, denial revisited....and the worst hangover ever should have been a hit single

It was released to radio stations in 1995 and reached #24 on the modern rock charts.

my opinions on singles, that i think IS& WOULDBE AWESOME SINGLES

well, none of the first two albums has the quality of getting out singles, i love the two albums, but no real single songs

Smash, genocide or what happend too you
Ixnay, Gone away&all i want( perfect single choices, both for the offspring crowd and the radio crowd)
Americana(TKAA, and have you ever or maybe staring at the sun
CO1, million miles away & come out swinging(just an awesome combo)
Splinter, Spare me the details & long way home

my opinion, do what you want
