40 Seasons: The Best of Skid Row is a compilation album released by Skid Row in 1998, which includes the chart topping singles: "18 and Life", "I Remember You" and "Youth Gone Wild".[3]

The compilation features songs from the first three Skid Row studio albums Skid Row, Slave to the Grind and Subhuman Race. The tracks "Into Another", "My Enemy" and "Breakin' Down" were remixed for this album with more tender, slightly cleaner mixes, presumably so they fit more suitingly with the other tracks. It also includes two unreleased tracks, one from the 1988 Skid Row sessions, and one from the 1990-91 Slave to the Grind sessions. The Japanese version features a bonus track from the B-Side Ourselves EP.
