Inches is an album by Les Savy Fav. Initial pressings of the CD came with a DVD featuring live performances, music videos and photos.

The album is a collection of singles from 1995–2004, containing many songs that were previously available on vinyl only. Among the tracks is "The Sweat Descends" which later became a single and was placed on several Best of 2004 rankings[citation needed]. "Meet Me in the Dollar Bin" is a song about one-hit wonders and bands that fall out of style. The song "Reformat" is recorded in two versions: a live version from a concert with fans providing extra vocals and a six-minute 'radio play' about a submarine captain who is executed by guillotine in a football stadium.
