    BITS is a great song and it really deserves to be one of the singles. I think it would be at least a better single than WFTE, because it has a more epic and rock sound than WFTE.
    So if we already have 3 singles (the catalyst, WFTE and BITS), then there are only 2 left and Iridescent will definitely be a single, because the whole band and especially Mike loves this song (he mentioned it very often).
    So there is only one single left and I think it´ll be W&K because it would please more people than Blackout, even though a video would be awesome
    WTCFM is good but I agree with those who say that the censored version would destroy the song.

    No, its unlikely they will have any other singles after BITS. 9 full songs on the album and 3 are to be singles. They need to advertise and sell the album and not broadcast too much content.

    No way. More singles = More Promotion for ATS = More Album Sales. They will push out as many singles as possible even if they do only have 9 full tracks on the album. Going by your logic, they kinda went against it by airing The Catalyst, Robot Boy, Burning In The Skies, Waiting For The End, Blackout & Wretches & Kings all before the album was released. They have no worries about airing "too much content". The more air play & promotion the better for them.

    ^Agreed. It doesn't matter if this album was meant to be their 'non-commercial' or 'non-mainstream' album. The band needs to sell albums to keep making money, and the only way to do that is through more singles. A good example of this is with The Catalyst vs WTFE. I know a lot of people in my area didn't flip over TC when it first came out (although I feel its a good song), however once WTFE came out...they told me how much they liked the "new Linkin Park song" and actually bought the disc.

    interesting choice. though personally I'd have gone for a heavier song next, then onto BITS. but I'm glad its beeing cosidered, as its probably one of the best choices for a single on ATS. But yeh, after this should be W&K no questions asked. LP is in dire need of a heavy song to change peoples perseption of them now. W&K will should that they still have that old LP energy.

    & then top it all off with Iridescent. like LOATR it has to be a single no matter what.

    except LOATR flopped. I'd compare it more to shadow of the day because i believe iridescent may be the only radio single.....or maybe not even.
    i'd like to see a miracle and have all 9 become singles. that'd be amazing

    Yes, that's been covered already. Again, check the editorial note in the first post.

    While both songs feature piano at the beginning I think Iridescent would be the better choice. Just the Intro to that song is enough to make people go 'WTF this is Linkin Park?!'

    I've always envisioned that if Iridescent was a music video, it would start with awesome puffy clouds moving fast and then a camera panning over a mountain with the sun coming up like as if you were parasailing. Like...they should hire National Geographic and shoot all the pretty stuff about the earth in HD.

    Those that are old and love Barry Manilow should like it. :awesome:

    I agree, definitely, but I guess it's okay as long as "Iridescent" is put out as a single later down the line. :)

    Besides, the way "Burning" starts up is pretty different for LP as well.

    Yes, I like your imagery for the beginning of Iridescent. I picture a little boy struggling to find his sister while a torrential weather phenomena is going on. Hmm the band is performing in the eyes of the little boy. other cheezy yet beautiful things like that

    Iridescent is one of my favorite songs ever, but there's something about Burning in the Skies that makes me want open my mind more. IMO.

    Though I don't really mind what the band puts out for singles because every single track in A Thousand Suns amazes me. So if it's Blackout, Wretches and Kings, When They Come For Me, Robot Boy, or The Messenger, I wouldn't mind. The only thing occupying my mind if one of those songs turn into a single is what the video will look like ^_^

    I don't know about that... For us, the real fans, it is different, but for an average fan it is just as same as What I've Done or New Divide...

    I hope they'll make a good music video for this, not like the one for "Waiting for the End" that I think is the worst LP music video till now.

    Oh, I'm certain that a video for "Burning In The Skies" would be a little more dramatic than the one for "Waiting For The End". :)
