Spellbound, very often subtitled on the cover as "The Very Best Of Split Enz", is a 1997 compilation album by New Zealand rock band Split Enz. Apparently intended to be the final word on Split Enz compilations, it is the band's most comprehensive career survey. Featured amongst the album's 39 tracks are all the hits, live favourites, choice album tracks and a few rarities, all selected by members of the band.

A la the band's 1980 album True Colours, the album was released with different colour combos for the cover: blue & yellow, red & green, purple & orange, and black & cream (the last one being the only combo available for the cassette version), while the 1999 New Zealand reissue featured a special black & silver cover.
