The Life and Crimes of Alice Cooper (1999) is a 4-CD box set by Alice Cooper. It includes select tracks from every studio album released up until then, plus many B-sides, unreleased songs, and other rarities.

The box set was coincidentally released on the same day as the Columbine High School massacre. Eric Harris's AOL member profile also included a quote from the Alice Cooper song Devil's Food ("Man has ruled this world as a stumbling, demented child king long enough"). Alice was shortly after interviewed on KTAR radio in Phoenix, explaining that the song was about nothing more than a black widow spider.[6]
