The Best of Type O Negative is an album from Roadrunner Records, featuring a collection of Type O Negative's music with the label. The album was released without Type O Negative's involvement (they were signed to SPV Records by the time of this compilation's release).

Songs from the albums The Origin of the Feces and then-new material from Least Worst Of are not represented on the album. Despite being an unsanctioned release, the cover of Deep Purple's Highway Star does not appear on any other Type O Negative release and is exclusive to the compilation - with exception of its previous inclusion on the compilation NASCAR: Crank It Up.

The album was released on September 12, 2006, simultaneously with similarly unsanctioned best-of collections of the bands Sepultura, Fear Factory, and Ill Niño.
