Singles

"Complicated" was the first single released from the album. Its release had a major impact on Lavigne's career, and significantly increased sales of the album. The song peaked at number one in Spain, number two on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, number three on the UK Singles Chart, number one in Australia for 6 weeks and number one in New Zealand for 9 weeks. "Complicated" remains Lavigne's most successful song to date, before her second most successful song "Girlfriend", from The Best Damn Thing.
"Sk8er Boi" was the second single released from Let Go, with a punk edge. The song went to number 1 in Spain, top 10 in the US, UK and Australia, New Zealand and top 30 in Canada. Nonetheless, it remains one of Lavigne's biggest songs to date. In the UK, the Single Sk8er Boi also helped the Album to achieve the Number one position just one week after the single was released.
After the upbeat songs "Complicated" and "Sk8er Boi" had their runs globally, Lavigne decided to release a ballad from her album. "I'm with You" performed a little bit better than "Sk8er Boi", peaking at number four on the Billboard Hot 100, number five in New Zealand, number seven in the UK, and number seventeen in Canada. It also made #1 on the United World Chart
The alternative rock-influenced "Losing Grip" was the fourth single. It barely gained any airplay or video play in the U.S., peaking at number sixty-four on the Billboard Hot 100, more than fifty spots lower than its three predecessors. It managed a twenty-two place in the UK, and went to number twenty in Australia, probably its highest chart position anywhere in the world. Otherwise its release was unsuccessful.
"Mobile" was the fifth and final single released from the album, although it was only released in Australia and New Zealand as a radio-only track. It was later used in 2003's The Medallion, the 2004 film Wimbledon with Kirsten Dunst, and a brief appearance in the film, "Just Married". It charted at #26 in New Zealand.

2 There are 2 versions of this song "Get Over It". The one on this album Lavigne sings, "Don't turn around, or you will get punched in the face". The version on Lavigne's single "Sk8er Boi" Lavigne sings, "Don't turn around, I'm sick and I'm tired of your face".
3 Lavigne recorded two songs both called "Take Me Away". This one on B-Sides is a happier song and the one on Lavigne's 2nd album Under My Skin is a lot different from the one on this album.
