Were Madness the best singles band ever?

No absolutely not.

But I'm just sat in the garden listening to The Smiths Singles album, and before that The Very Best of The Jam.
The Rolling Stones - The London Years comes close as well
Three finer singles compilations you will not find.

Probably 12-15 imo.
Enough for an album. Even if the band never released the singles compilation.
Has to include all singles.

The Jam is probably the best imo. A dozen consecutive absolute classics.

Edit. Singles of greatness suggests you mean a best of, i mean all singles.
