"Greatest Hits" is a compilation album by Social Distortion. It was released on June 26, 2007. It includes hit singles from "Mommy's Little Monster" to "Sex, Love and Rock 'n' Roll" – as well as the unreleased track "Far Behind", which also became a hit single – yet lacks anything from "", which is actually a compilation of unreleased early material.

"Far Behind" is also the band's first new song recorded with the current line-up of Mike Ness (vocals, guitars), Jonny "2 Bags" Wickersham (guitar), Brent Harding (bass) and Charlie Quintana (drums).

Tracks 4 through 9 have been re-recorded for this album (the rights to the original recordings belong to Epic Records, the band's former major label that released them as singles and as part of their respective albums), while the others are the original recordings. The limited edition vinyl for this album contains an interview with Mike Ness.
