Genesis Archive #2: 1976–1992 is a 2000 boxed set by veteran progressive rock/pop band Genesis. This retrospective covers the band's history while Phil Collins was lead singer.

The three discs consist of live recordings (mostly previously unreleased, with a few that had been B-sides), 12" remixes, a "work-in-progress" jam, non-album B-sides, and tracks from the Spot the Pigeon and 3X3 EPs. There was a minor backlash from hardcore fans as "Match of the Day" and "Me and Virgil" were left off the set (although both had been released on CD before) due to Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford disliking the former track while Phil Collins disliked the latter one. (Less talked about was the fact that "Submarine" and "It's Yourself", neither of which had been released on CD otherwise, were both edited versions—the former due to master damage, the latter due to the band's preference. "Submarine" was later released in its unedited form on Genesis 1976–1982.)

Genesis Archive 2: 1976–1992 reached #103 in the UK.
