Greatest Hits is a hits compilation by Robbie Williams, released in 2004. It included two new songs, these being "Radio" and "Misunderstood", which were both released as singles.
The album is his seventh album released in the United Kingdom. It is one of the fastest selling albums upon release in the country, where it debuted at the number-one spot with first week sales over 320,000 copies. Certain versions of the compilation feature Williams in a pose exposing his pubic hair on the cover.
A special edition box set with all of Robbie Williams' singles was released on the same day.
A year after the release of his live album, in October 2004, Williams' decided that it was time to make a retrospective of his career, and also, to reveal the new tracks he had been working on with the then new collaborator, Stephen Duffy.

Written on the inside cover of the album is the Latin phase "…si quid habet mammas vel rotas, res habebis difficiles aliquando." this translates into "if it has tits or wheels, it makes life difficult."
Debuting at number one, the album sold 320,000 copies in its first week, becoming the fastest selling greatest hits album ever released in the United Kingdom. The album hit the top spot in 18 countries: Arabia, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, the aforementioned United Kingdom, Argentina, Colombia, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, and Switzerland among others.
