Rooftops is a single by Welsh band lostprophets, which was released in the United Kingdom on June 19, 2006.

The first airing of the single in the UK recently was in front of 25,000 fans when the lostprophets headlined the Give It a Name festival in Manchester and London.

The song is taken from the number one album Liberation Transmission and was recorded in Hawaii. The b-sides found on the single came from the same sessions - all of which are brand new tracks. The video was filmed on location in Los Angeles, USA and was co-directed by the band and Ryan Smith (of Story of the Year).

When the band pitched their dream video for "Rooftops (A Liberation Broadcast)" to their record label, it was refused because it would have cost 8 million pounds to produce. It subsequently went through several re-drafts before they settled on the final version.
The chorus of "Rooftops (A Liberation Broadcast)" was inspired by the scene in the film Garden State where the characters are screaming into a pit. The general theme of the song also matches the film's — "make a mark" in your life while there's still time.
