Who Cares a Lot? is the first compilation album from Faith No More, released on November 24, 1998. The album is a greatest hits retrospective that spans most of the band's career, including songs from all of the band's studio albums released under Slash Records.

The first disc collects 15 singles from the band's Slash Records career in chronological order. It features the most recognized hits and promos. The second disc has a handful of unreleased songs, b-sides, demos, and live recordings, which were chosen by record label Slash rather than the band themselves. Some of the notable previously unreleased material includes "The World Is Yours" and "I Won't Forget You".

Release history[edit]

There were three different versions that were put out for this compilation. Between the versions, the title and covers were altered. The single disc edition was tagged "The Greatest Hits", while the dual disc was labelled "Greatest Hits".

The album art for the American release was the red question mark on black background, while the UK, European, Argentine, and Oceanian releases featured the Benny Hill art. The Oceanian double disc edition also had a "Limited Edition 2CD Set" sticker, as in other markets the bonus disc was not limited. In Europe only a single disc edition was released. For this, the first five tracks off the second disc were simply added to the end of the compilation.

The album was originally called 'Who Cared a Lot?'. It had a different order of tracks and a different cover, but only saw release as a promo.
