For a greatest hits, it has to be either Everyday or Misunderstood. I'd personally vote for the former. It was quite a big hit in Ireland/UK/Europe so I'm surprised it didn't make it on to Disc 2. It's a pity that all albums weren't represented.

That's not what I'm saying, I'm talking about the top 20 selling BJ singles in the UK, not the ones that made the UK top 10 etc

Yeah, it's probably why I don't like it. Back then there were several guitar bands rising up in the USA and none of them did anything for me. It feels whiny and instantly forgettable and lacks punch.

Disc 2 is just an excuse to cram the other half of what was then the current setlist on there. At least half of what's on Disc 2 wasn't a greatest hit anywhere, really and adding fan favourites on a Greatest Hits is idiotic anyway.

Clearly Everyday.

If you take chart position as an important criteria, Greatest Hits should have included:

You Give Love A Bad Name
Liviní On A Prayer
Wanted Dead Or Alive
Bad Medicine
Born To Be My Baby
Iíll Be There For You
Lay Your Hands On Me
Keep The Faith
Bed Of Roses
In These Arms
Always
Someday Iíll Be Saturday Night
This Ainít A Love Song
Something For The Pain
Lie To Me

These Days
Itís My Life
One Wild Night
Everyday

Have A Nice Day
Who Says You Canít Go Home
(You Want To) Make A Memory
We Werenít Born To Follow

Runaway [because of the bandís history]

This makes 24 songs.
And possibly:

Living In Sin
Never Say Goodbye
Dry County
Hey God
Say It Isnít So
Thank You For Loving Me
All About Loving You

Personally I don't have a problem with Something For The Pain missing.

Easy... Undivided! Which was "something that's universal" (as always).

Undivided wasn't a single and has no business being on this release but then again so does a good chunk of disc 2.

Bounce is one of their better album (in my opinion), it was also influenced in part from 9/11 and there isn't songs from that album in the GH...., I can't realize that, not even after 9 years...

And that's why it should have been there :P

I mean, do you guys make a difference if the album is The Greatest Hits or The Best Of? I don't.
Even though I know that GH should be compiled of songs that charted the best. In such case, it definitely should reflect the markets. A bunch of songs will be same everywhere. And also - do you the charts dictate it all? Because it might happen that there will be no new song because the old ones all did much better.
On the other hand The best Of should be a compilation of just the best song, meaning not only singles but also fan favourites and live favourites?

"Best of" is completely subjective. Best of to who? The label? The fans? The people who hate ballads? The people that hate the rock songs? At least Greatest Hits has quantifiable data to back it up. Most of the songs on both discs were physically released with promo videos so it's easier to give it a pass. For as much as it tanked I still feel like more people would know Lost Highway over Undivided and it deserves to be there versus songs on albums not released at all.

Lost Highway doesn't deserve to be anywhere - neither setlists nor GH tracklists
