Musical Artists that have never released a best of compilation?

...... or ultimate collection, definitive etc.

As I rack me brains I'll start with Metallica and Coldplay.

I think we should only include artists that have released 3+ albums.

Think both have done them. It's not as easy as I thought.

Bit of a myth really, as they've released a couple but just never called them "Greatest Hits" albums. They released the 17 track Ballbreakers album in 1995 which was essentially a greatest hits compilation, and prior to that you could argue that Who Made Who was also a greatest hits album. Also, they released the Family Jewels greatest hits DVD collection.

As for bands without a greatest hits album, I'd say Nine Inch Nails and Muse.

Bananarama? Skip that

I was going to say Bad Mannners, then I realised they had done a compilation of their hits & I had it.

Agreed also the Iron Man 2 soundtracks basically a hits album

Foo Fighters?

Foo Fighters Greatest Hits was released a couple of years ago.

One that springs to mind is the biggest selling band of this century - Linkin Park - haven't released an official greatest hits album.

Arctic Monkeys haven't had a greatest hits album either.

Leapy Lee.

Little Arrows In Your Clothing, it's an absolute travesty that it never became the Australian national anthem ;)

Very few people seem to buy Greatest Hits albums anymore. I think there's always a feeling that everyone whose already a fan has got them all already.

Iron Maiden definitely have a 1980-1990 best of because I have it.S

Slipknot bought out a GH a couple of months ago called Antennas To Hell. A package like that would have gone to #1 before 2005 but yeh because of the internet I don't think it made top 10.

I think all this below is correct but it is OTTOMH:

British in bold

The Cribs (5) 2004-2012 *

Architects (5) 2006-2012

Lostprophets (5) 2000-2012

Muse (6) 1999-2012

Coldplay (5) 2000-2011

Silverstein (6) 2003-2012

Deftones (7) 1995-2012

My Morning Jacket (6) 1999-2011

Queens Of The Stone Age (5) 1998-2007

Yellowcard (8) 1997-2012 **

System Of A Down (5) 1998-2005

Weezer (9) 1994-2010 ***

Slayer (11) 1983? or 84? or 85?! - 2009

* Soon to change - a Singles collection out 2013.

** Though only latter 5 are 'proper'.

*** Though apparently their last 5/6ish have been ######.

Can anyone name any British bands 5+ LP's that were part of the whole Indie thing (circa 2001-2006) who have came out of it unscathed?? I can only think of The Cribs who have released 5 albums and are still going strong but there must be more.

Franz Ferdinand have released 3, with the last one being a couple of years ago? Depends what you call catergorise as indie. Keane have released 4 albums.
