Thunderpuss is a compilation album mixed by DJs and producers Barry Harris and Chris Cox, better known under the moniker Thunderpuss. Released in 2002, it comprises their remixes of other artists' work as well as their own music.

A compilation album comprises tracks, which may be previously released or unreleased, usually from several separate recordings by either one or several performers. If by one artist, then generally the tracks were not originally intended for release together as a single work, but may be collected together as a greatest hits album or box set. If from several performers, there may be a theme, topic, time period, or genre which links the tracks, or they may have been intended for release as a single work—such as a tribute album. When the tracks are by the same recording artist, the album may be referred to as a retrospective album or an anthology.
