“Rooftops (A Liberation Broadcast)” 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 was in the Muni Arts Center in Pontypridd on the 24th April 2006. 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 single entered the UK Singles Chart at #8, making it the joint highest performing Lostprophets single along with Last Train Home.
