Still, Alive... and Well? is a Megadeth compilation album released on September 10, 2002 and is the last Megadeth release with bassist and co-founder David Ellefson until his reunion with the band eight years later. The album was released to fulfil Megadeth's record contract with Sanctuary Records after Dave Mustaine dissolved the band seemingly indefinitely when he sustained a serious nerve injury in 2002. The album's name is a quote from Dave Mustaine's answer to an interviewer's question: "What do you want written on your tombstone?"

The first six tracks (two of which were previously unreleased) were recorded live at the Web Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona, on November 17, 2001. The remaining tracks are selections from The World Needs a Hero.[1][2]
