Greatest Hits is a compilation album by The Style Council, released in 2000 eleven years after their split. It was re-released 14 April 2003. It contains their most of their singles in chronological order. It reached 28 in the UK Album Charts.

It is the band's second greatest hits album, eleven years after The Singular Adventures of The Style Council. Greatest Hits differs from the latter as it has all the band's singles, usually in 7" format, and in chronological order. Both albums feature a photograph of the band showing all four members which was taken in 1987. The US version of The Cost of Loving and the rarities compilation Here's Some That Got Away also feature photographs from this session.
