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 until then, plus many B-sides, unreleased songs, and other rarities. It also includes Alice Cooper's authorized biography, written by Jeffrey Morgan of Creem magazine.

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]
