Monkeemania (The Very Best of the Monkees) is a two-disc Monkees compilation released in 2011. It contains 57 of The Monkees' songs including hit singles, b-sides, album tracks and rarities. Several of these songs were unreleased in the 1960s but were eventually issued on the Monkees' Missing Links archival compilation albums.

This compilation is not to be confused with the Arista Records compilation album Monkeemania that was issued in Australia in 1979.[1]
