Madhouse: The Very Best of Anthrax is the name of the sixteenth release, and second compilation album, by the band Anthrax.

The album was released in 2001 by the Island Def Jam Music Group without the direct participation of any band member, unlike the 1999 release Return of the Killer A's. Such was the haphazard nature of the release that guitarist and founding member Scott Ian openly criticized Island Def Jam for what he saw as the shoddy nature of the compilation, especially the accidental inclusion of the Persistence of Time track "Time" in place of the band's hit cover version of Joe Jackson's "Got the Time", which was listed on the cover. The iTunes Music Store digital version of the album, and presumably subsequent pressings of the CD version, correct this mistake but incorrectly lists "Keep It in the Family" as a live version.
