The discography of Matchbox Twenty, an American rock band, consists of three studio albums, one compilation album, three video albums and twenty singles.
Matchbox Twenty released their debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You, in 1996. The album received very little media coverage, and the first single, "Long Day", had some success on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks as well as a minor charting in Australia. The second single, "Push", received much larger airplay time in the US, as well as charting at number 38 on the United Kingdom Singles Chart and number 8 on the Australian ARIA Singles Chart. This saw album sales slowly climb in countries like the US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, though it charted much more poorly in Europe. With the success of follow up singles such as "3 A.M.", "Real World" and "Back 2 Good", Yourself or Someone Like You achieved massive sales, including a diamond certification in the US.
Following the success of their debut album, the band released their second studio album, Mad Season, in 2000. Critical reception was mixed,[1] but the album was a commercial and chart success, topping the Australian Albums Chart and reaching number three in Canada and the Billboard 200. The lead single, "Bent", topped the Billboard Hot 100 and was a chart success in Australia and New Zealand. The second single, "If You're Gone", received extensive airplay on adult-orientated radio stations in the US, as well as being a second hit in Australia and New Zealand in addition to charting in the UK. The next three singles, "Mad Season", "Angry" and "Last Beautiful Girl" were all far less successful.
Matchbox Twenty released their third album, More Than You Think You Are, in 2002. The album also received a mixed response from critics,[2] and initially looked to be a commercial failure after the modest performance of the albums lead single "Disease". However, the second single, "Unwell", gained an enormous radio presence in the US and became a hit in both New Zealand and Australia and saw the album maintain a long lasting chart presence. The album's third single, "Bright Lights", was also successful, though less so than "Unwell". The final two singles, "Downfall" and "All I Need", both were relatively unsuccessful.
After a five year hiatus to allow lead singer Rob Thomas to begin his solo career, the band re-united to record six new songs for a greatest hits compilation. This new album was called Exile on Mainstream. The lead single, "How Far We've Come", went platinum in the US and became the band's most successful song in Australia where it was announced to be the most played record of the year in that country.[3] It also charted strongly in New Zealand. Due to this the album was a chart success, but follow up singles "All Your Reasons" and "These Hard Times" were much less successful.
