Divine Madness is the 1992 greatest hits album from the British ska/pop band Madness. It presents the group's single A-sides in chronological order, though sometimes in their LP rather than single versions.

The album peaked at number 1 in the UK charts, and it eventually led to a Madness reunion and their first concert in six years (which was recorded for their Madstock! album).

Divine Madness was also released as a video and eventually DVD with all Madness music videos, including "Bed & Breakfast Man", "Sweetest Girl" and "I Pronounce You", the latter performed by spin-off group The Madness. The group's Japanese TV adverts for Honda City cars were also included. The album was re-packaged in 1998 as The Heavy Heavy Hits with the addition of "The Sweetest Girl" (placed in its correct chronological position after "Uncle Sam") and re-issued under its original title in 2000, with the further singles Lovestruck and Johnny the Horse.
