Placebo have never really belonged to any particular set throughout their 20 years as a band – surely the reason they’ve continued to thrive whilst many a flavour-of-the-month have fallen by the wayside.

When they broke into wide rock consciousness with the spiky, iconic 90s single ‘nancy boy’, their angst and androgyny set them apart in a UK music landscape that seemed dominated by safe m.o.r indie, disposable pop, and the normalcy of male-centric hard-rock. They were just as likely to feature on the cover of Kerrang as they were Q, or a broadsheet supplement. Moreover, deeper cuts from their debut album revealed a surprising melodicism which they fully realised later by delivering some of the most dramatic and memorable rock songs of the era. This massive collection spans their whole career and serves as reminder of their singularity and endurance.
