/ Best debut single ever
Arctic Monkeys: I bet that you look good on the dance floor.
Sex Pistols - Anarchy in the UK
The Clash - White Riot
White Riot or Hey Joe.
I forgot - Anarchy in the UK.
Or "One Time" by Justin Bieber.
Dusty Springfield - I only want to be with you
Roadrunner - Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers
Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Relax
Ramones - Blitzkreig Bop
Debut singles can be fantastic!
> Dusty Springfield - I only want to be with you
And though I don't think it's that great, perhaps Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush (as an example of what the OP says - setting out what the artist is all about)
Roxy Music - Virginia Plain
Oops, I did it again - Britney Spears.
Decent list here, worth a look.
I'll throw in A Whiter Shade of Pale and Break on Through To The Other Side.
Joy division - transmission
Rem - radio free Europe
Omd - electricity
House of love - shine on
Half man half biscuit - trumpton riots
Like it Chris :-)
Wuthering Heights - Kate Bush
> Sex Pistols - Anarchy in the UK
> The Clash - White Riot
Or how about New Rose by the Damned?
Mouldy Old Dough by Lieutenant Pigeon ( a no.1 no less)
good but wasn't their debut which was Evil Woman
Pet Shop Boys: West End Girls
Dire Straits: Sultans of Swing
The Waterboys: A Girl Called Johnny
Elvis Presley - Heartbreak Hotel.
Though not his debut in the USA, I believe it was his first single in the UK.
> Elvis Presley - Heartbreak Hotel.

Think his first US one was That's Alright Mama / Blue Moon of Kentucky. Which is EVEN BETTER than Heartbreak Hotel!
Couple of 60's classics:
Del Shannon - Runaway
The Mamas and the Papas - California Dreamin'
i beg to differ that it was in fact good times bad times/dazed and confused, but agree totally - best first single ever.
21 seconds to go
> good but wasn't their debut which was Evil Woman
My bad, mea culpa.
> Oops, I did it again - Britney Spears.
I'm ashamed to know this, but this wasn't her debut. Hit Me Baby One More Time was Britney's debut.
Hong Kong Garden - Siouxsie and the Banshees
"Same old feeling" Picketty Witch
Something In the Air - Thunderclap Newman
Spirit in the Sky - Norman Greenbaum
Telstar - Tornadoes
Glad All Over - Dave Clark Five
Arnold Layne - Pink Floyd
Changes - Sugar
Bingo Master's Break Out! - The Fall
MMMM mmmm mmmm mmmm - Crash Test Dummies
In the City - The Jam
That was not their debut, which was "Dimples"
> MMMM mmmm mmmm mmmm - Crash Test Dummies
Relax - FGTH
Hatfield & The North - Fitter Stoke Has A Bath.
The eagle eyed among you will realise that this was in fact the b side to Share It.
