Extreme Honey: The Very Best of Warner Brothers Years is a 1997 compilation album by Elvis Costello, spanning the years 1989–1997.

The collection contains one exclusive track, "The Bridge I Burned." Costello had originally recorded a cover of Prince's "Pop Life" for inclusion, but Prince denied him permission to release it. As a response, Costello wrote "The Bridge I Burned," using a similar arrangement to what he had intended to use for Prince's song.

Early editions of the album had a digital glitch on the song "My Dark Life" which Costello performed and produced with Brian Eno.
