Tears Roll Down (Greatest Hits 82–92) is a compilation album released by British band Tears for Fears in 1992. Preceded by the hit single "Laid So Low (Tears Roll Down)", the album contains twelve of the band's UK Top 40 hits. The album has been certified double platinum in the UK, platinum in the US, and gold in several other countries including Canada and France.

Tears Roll Down originally peaked at #1 in Italy and #2 in the UK and France upon its release, but returned to the UK Top 10 (#6) in 2004 for several weeks following the success of Gary Jules' cover version of "Mad World".

A compilation video under the same title was also released in 1992, and later issued on DVD.

The album itself was reissued in 2004 as a 2CD/1DVD set under the "Sound+Vision Deluxe" line, and again in 2005 with a bonus disc containing various remixes.
