The Least Worst Of is a compilation album by Type O Negative, released on June 21, 2000. The album contains some previously released material alongside a few new tracks and remixes. There are two versions of this album: edited and unedited (with a parental advisory label/logo). The picture on the album cover is of the parachute jump at Coney Island, in Brooklyn, New York.

Consistent with many of the band's previous 'joke tracks', the first track "The Misinterpretation of Silence and Its Disastrous Consequences (Wombs and Tombs mix)", much like the original is completely silent. The only "remix" that occurs here is simply that the track is shorter—39 seconds of silence instead of the original's 64 second silence. Given the title of the album, it is also an example of their self-deprecating humor style, with the logic that silence can actually be considered some of their best work.

The album peaked at #99 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart.
