"Twenty Years" is a song recorded by alternative rock band Placebo, and included on their 2004 best-of compilation release, Once More with Feeling. It was the only entirely new song to be released as a single (although Protège-Moi, a French-language re-recording of an earlier song, was released in France).[1] It was available with a video, radio play, and CD single distribution.

Furthermore, the song was one of two songs (with The Bitter End), performed by Placebo at the Paris leg of the international Live 8 benefit concert in 2005.

In the UK, it peaked at number 18 in the UK Singles Chart.[2] In Australia, the song was ranked #95 on Triple J's Hottest 100 of 2004.

When played live, the song often has an extra middle eight section added on.
