Considering the highly negative reception of Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, singles from Heathen Chemistry have been solid hits, although mostly in the UK. Due to the collapse of the physical singles’ market subsequent singles sold less and less. In fact, in spite of its 120,000 sales only, The Importance Of Being Idle was the first hit from the band to spend 5 weeks inside the Top 20 UK chart since 1997.

Among the orphan songs, Whatever, which was used as a bridge between Definitely Maybe and Morning Glory, is a million seller.
