(2005)

Anthrology: No Hit Wonders (1985–1991) is a greatest hits compilation of songs by the band Anthrax, which is centered on the 2005 Among the Living line-up reunion (see also Alive 2) which includes current vocalist Joey Belladonna and former guitarist Dan Spitz. This release only features songs from the band's Joey Belladonna-era studio output, which began with Armed and Dangerous and ended with Attack of the Killer B's. Therefore, the album does not include any material from the Neil Turbin era, which featured the band's debut album Fistful of Metal or the John Bush era, which featured Sound of White Noise, Stomp 442, Volume 8: The Threat Is Real and We've Come for You All.

This release was issued in separate CD and DVD versions. The CD version comprises two discs. All of the tracks featured on the CD version of this release have been remastered. The DVD version of this release is referred to as "Anthrology: No Hit Wonders (1985–1991): The Videos", and features all of the videos Anthrax released during Joey Belladonna's tenure with the band. Both the title and the album cover seem to be references to the Beatles compilation The Beatles Anthology.
