Big Ones was a compilation album released in 1989 by the Canadian rock band Loverboy. The album was the band's first compilation, including hit tracks such as "Working for the Weekend" and "Lovin' Every Minute of it". It was also released in the same year that the band decided to take a break, and another compilation would not be released until five years later.
