Greatest Hits is a compilation by Rick Astley released in the UK in 2002 and in the US a year later. While the American version features alternate mixes focused between 1987 and 1991, the European version features hits up to his 2002 album Keep It Turned On. It sold over 100,000 copies in the UK and was certified Gold by the BPI.

The UK release saw the debut appearance of Astley's 2001 single Sleeping, thus making it a brand-new track for listeners.
