Lest We Forget: The Best Of is the first greatest hits album by American rock band Marilyn Manson, released on September 28, 2004 by Interscope Records. The album includes a cover version of Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus".

The album cover is one of Marilyn Manson's watercolor paintings, titled "Experience is The Mistress of Fools". The deluxe edition includes a DVD containing most of the band's music videos. The album was certified gold in the United States and was supported with the band's Against All Gods Tour. Manson initially referred to Lest We Forget as the band's "farewell album" because the band would become a solo career for him. This has turned out to be true as subsequent albums were typically written and recorded with just one primary collaborator such as Tim Sköld, Twiggy Ramirez, and Tyler Bates.
