Decade – Greatest Hits is a greatest hits album by Duran Duran, released on 15 November 1989 (see 1989 in music).

The remix single "Burning the Ground" was released to radio to promote this album. It was created by producer John Jones by mixing snippets of the band's biggest hits from the previous decade into a new piece of music. However, the track was not included on the Decade album itself. The tracks "My Own Way" and "New Moon on Monday" were also not included, even though both were Top 20 hits in the UK.

Decade's track listing included various hits from all of Duran Duran's albums and presented them in mixes that were popular and mainstream among the public. Hence, it includes the Nile Rodgers edit of "The Reflex" and the radio edits of "Notorious" and "Skin Trade."
