Chisel is the 1991 compilation album by Australian pub rockers Cold Chisel. It features a selection of their best songs from previous albums, including live versions of the tracks "Merry-Go-Round", "Star Hotel" and "Goodbye (Astrid Goodbye)". The track "Misfits" was a previously unreleased song and was removed from later re-issues of this album. A limited edition release of this album included the long-deleted 1978 live EP "You're Thirteen, You're Beautiful, and You're Mine".

The album spent over 50 weeks in the national charts, peaking at number 3, when first released.[2]
