The Complete Stone Roses is a compilation of singles and B-sides by English rock band The Stone Roses. It was released in 1995 without the band's input by their record company Silvertone, with whom they were embroiled in a protracted legal battle to terminate their five-year contract.

The album features an almost complete collection of the band's singles and B-sides for the label, as well as earlier releases for other labels.
