Queen: Absolute Greatest is a compilation album by the British rock band Queen, which was released on 16th November 2009 in the United Kingdom. The Album features 20 of their most famous hits throughout their career on one CD for the very first time and is available in several formats including the single CD edition, a 2CD special edition featuring audio commentaries by Brian May & Roger Taylor, a 52 page hardback book with the 2 CD's, digital download, and an LP edition box set. Each track has been remastered from the original tapes by Bob Ludwig.

A promotion running on the band's official website, Queen Online, gave fan's the opportunity to guess the next track on the album and win a prize if their answer was correct (a new track was revealed daily). The prizewinner was then chosen in a random selection.[1]

It reached #3 upon release in the United Kingdom album charts, and #9 in the Republic of Ireland.
