Hits (Pulp album)

Hits is a greatest hits collection by the English rock band Pulp, released in November 2002. As a collection, Hits only covers Pulp's singles from the early 1990s when they hit the mainstream, although the band had existed in one form or another since 1978. "Mis-Shapes", from Different Class, is the only hit single not included here because the band cannot stand the song. Two other singles, "Common People" and "Disco 2000", are presented in their Different Class album mixes rather than their more familiar "hit" single versions; the compilation includes non-single track "Underwear" and a new song "Last Day of the Miners' Strike". The album was released on DVD under the same title, featuring the band's promotional videos from the same era, a number of live performances and short movies. Note: "Underwear" appears on the UK version of the album only – however it is listed in error on the sleeve of the Canadian version. Short films Do You Remember the First Time?
