Evolution: The Hits is a compilation album from the British dance/pop band Dead or Alive, in 2003.

Evolution: The Hits is the band's second "greatest hits" collection, after 1987's Rip It Up. This collection spans their musical history from their 1984 debut album, Sophisticated Boom Boom, to 2000's Fragile, and contains all their single releases and several remixes.

The album was released in two editions - a single disc containing 18 tracks, and a double disc 'Collector's Edition', containing 28 tracks. The group's biggest hit, "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)", was re-released as a single to promote Evolution: The Hits. A video compilation was also released on DVD.
