Capitol Punishment: The Megadeth Years is a best-of album by heavy metal band Megadeth, released in 2000 on Capitol Records.
Megadeth were working on a new album when they got into an argument with the record company, Capitol Records. Because of this, they wanted to sign to a new record label, but Capitol didn't let them go so easily. Megadeth still had obligations to release one album. They had already recorded a full album, which was apparently going to be called Capitol Punishment, but instead they decided to release a best-of album, which did include two new songs, Kill The King and Dread And The Fugitive Mind.

A few of the songs that were recorded for the original Capitol Punishment were When, Promises, Return to Hangar, Capitol Punishment and the two new tracks that did make it to version that was released, Kill the King and Dread & The Fugitive Mind. The songs that haven't been released yet will be included on the upcoming Megadeth album, The World Needs A Hero, which will be released by Sanctuary Records.
