Absolute Garbage is the 2007 greatest hits album released by alternative rock group Garbage. The album was compiled and released by Geffen imprint Almo Sounds through Universal Music Enterprises backcatalogue division in North America and Warner Music's record label A&E Records throughout the rest of the world. It was released while Garbage were on "hiatus" following the band's one-off reformation to perform at a benefit concert early in the same year.
The album includes remastered version of sixteen of the band's singles which run chronologically in the track listing, plus a brand new track, specially recorded for the compilation, "Tell Me Where It Hurts", which preceded the album at radio across the world, with a commercial single release in the United Kingdom. Absolute Garbage was released on CD and a special edition Double-CD package which included a second disc of remixes. A DVD compilation rounded out the formats; among the sixteen Garbage music videos featured, is an hour-long documentary film titled "Thanks For Your, Uhhh Support" incorporating footage filmed backstage and behind-the-scenes, archive live performances and interviews spanning the band's entire career.

“I learned early to understand that there is no such condition in human affairs as absolute truth. There is only truth as people see it, and truth, even in fact, may be kaleidoscopic in its variety. The damage such perception did to me I have felt ever since ... I could never belong entirely to one side of any question.”
—Pearl S. Buck (18921973)
