Greatest Hits is the name of a compilation album by comedy/parody band The 8th Horcrux, released on July 17, 2013. The album is a greatest hits release, as per the name. Originally, the album was slated to be called In the Pensieve after the song of the same name, but the name was changed.

The album currently ranks as one of the most popular wizard rock releases on the internet music store Bandcamp.


The album is comprised of 23 songs that span The 8th Horcrux' four-year career. Potterwatch! is represented by two songs, Accio Awesome is represented by five songs, Noize From the Cupboard is represented with four songs, and Ridiculously Wicked is represented with two songs. The 2011 EP Pottermost! is represented with one song. Four songs ("Gringotts", "Rita Skeeter Will Never Write Another Letter", "Wand Thing", and "Voldemort's Goin' Down") were recorded specifically for the album.

Several of the songs that originally appeared on the band's debut album Potterwatch!, however, were re-recorded for this album, such as "Ginny, Are You OK?", "Death Eaters", and "Privet Drive". In addition, a remix of the re-recording of "Potions Wizard" is included. "The Lavatory Song", which appeared on the 2013 release Ridiculously Wicked is also included in a slightly remixed form.


To garner money to fund the production of the album, The 8th Horcrux created an Indiegogo account to raise money. The goal of the fundraiser was 500 dollars; over 200 dollars was successfully raised, which was exactly the funding needed to press-up the albums. Every contribution was also linked to a specific prize.
