Greatest Hits is a greatest hits compilation by British band Culture Club with androgynous frontman Boy George. It was released in the US and Canada on 21 June 2005.

The album includes their best known hits, starting with their debut album Kissing to Be Clever, and finishing with their most recent album Don't Mind If I Do. Because their final album was not released in America, this compilation was the only US release which featured the UK singles "Your Kisses Are Charity" and "Cold Shoulder". Only one American Culture Club single was omitted from the compilation, the non-charting "Gusto Blusto" from 1986's From Luxury to Heartache.

By 2006, US sales for the album were reported at 40,164 although it failed to make Billboard's album chart.

This compilation was reissued for the European market in August 2010. It was released as a DVD and CD combo, the DVD including 17 music videos and a 13-tracks live show from December 1983 recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon. This CD is reflection of the DVD, including the 17 audio tracks of those videos, with some different mixes and edits. Some tracks of the 2005 version were removed (White Boy, Black Money) and two were added, UK singles "God Thank You Woman" and "Cold Shoulder".
