Year of the Cycos is a compilation album of bands featuring vocalist Mike Muir, released in 2008. It features new and previously released songs by Suicidal Tendencies, Infectious Grooves, Cyco Miko, and No Mercy.

Year of the Cycos was available exclusively at concerts during Suicidal Tendencies' 2008 tour and is currently available via the band's official e-card and website.

Some tracks are older songs, like No Mercy's "Crazy and Proud" which was originally released in 1987, while others tracks are recent re-recordings of previously released songs, such as Suicidal Tendencies' "Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right" which originally appeared on their 1987 Join the Army album. Year of the Cycos is essentially a sampler of tracks from planned forthcoming releases by Infectious Grooves, Cyco Miko, and Suicidal Tendencies (their subsequent album, a collection of re-recordings of previously released songs, was released in 2010).

The Suicidal Tendencies song "Come Alive", heralded as a return to the classic era Suicidal sound from the early 1990s complete with distinct guitar solos, had a music video created for it.
