Dirty Hits is the first greatest hits compilation album by British rock band Primal Scream. It was released on 3 November 2003. Early limited versions came in a card sleeve with a bonus disc of remixes; most had previously appeared as b-sides.

The album is generally made up of chronologically listed singles, except "Long Life", "Shoot Speed/Kill Light" "Deep Hit of Morning Sun"; all were album tracks. The album summarizes the band's material from 1990 to 2003. The rare C86 single "Velocity Girl" is not included, neither is anything from Sonic Flower Groove or their self-titled 1989 album.
