50,000 Fall Fans Can't Be Wrong – 39 Golden Greats is a greatest hits album released by The Fall in 2004. It was the group's first career-spanning compilation, with a selection of songs from the 1978 EP Bingo-Master's Break-Out! up to the 2003 album The Real New Fall LP (Formerly Country on the Click). The selection of songs includes both singles and album highlights. Daryl Eslea compiled the album and wrote the sleevenotes.

The cover and title of the album is a parody of Elvis Presley's 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong (1959).
