Top 40 Hits is the second full-length album by Anal Cunt, released in 1995 on CD and cassette by Earache Records.

The cover of this album is a parody of the compilation albums released in the 1970s by TV advertising company K-Tel.

The album was recorded in 1994 as part of the band's attempt to move from playing noisecore to playing fast hardcore songs, although the album contains both styles. There are also numerous cover songs on the album including those of Rupert Holmes's "Escape (The Pina Colada Song)", The Guess Who's "American Woman", Elton John's "I'm Still Standing", The A-Team theme song, and a cover of the Bee Gees song "Stayin' Alive". Their "Oi! version" of this song was also released as a promotional single before the album was released. Additionally, the song "Lenny's in My Neighborhood" parodies the Body Count song "There Goes the Neighborhood" both lyrically and musically.
