Koroshi no Shirabe: This Is Not Greatest Hits (殺シノ調ベ This Is NOT Greatest Hits "The Songs of Murder: This Is Not Greatest Hits"?) is the first compilation album released by the Japanese rock band Buck-Tick. It was released on cassette and CD on March 21, 1992 through Victor Entertainment.[1] All of the tracks on the compilation were re-recorded and contain different musical arrangements, because of this some argue that it is a studio or remix album. The album was digitally remastered and re-released on September 19, 2002, with a bonus track. It was remastered and re-released again on September 5, 2007. Koroshi no Shirabe: This Is Not Greatest Hits peaked at number one on the Oricon charts and has sold 340,000 copied worldwide.[2]
