"The Hole Truth... and Nothing Butt" is the first compilation album by American punk band Butthole Surfers, officially released in March 1995. All songs were written by the Butthole Surfers.

The album was originally released on CD in 1994 by bootleg label Totonka Records. A "best of the boots" collection put together by fans, it offers a mix of studio demos and live recordings, as well as a portion of a radio interview. The band liked the compilation enough that they reissued it through Trance Syndicate in 1995, also packaging a Butthole Surfers sticker along with it.

The two demos, "Butthole Surfer" and "Something," were recorded in 1983. Of the live tracks, four were taped in 1985, three in 1986, two in 1988, one each in 1989 and 1991, and three in 1993.

The interview was taped at New York, NY station WNYU on July 28, 1987. All members from that time period are present, including Gibby Haynes, Paul Leary, King Coffey, Teresa Nervosa, and Jeff Pinkus.

"The Hole Truth... and Nothing Butt" is the third of three Surfers albums to feature clown imagery on the cover, the others being 1984's "Live PCPPEP" and 1987's "Locust Abortion Technician". The clown illustrations on this album's front cover are combined and recolored versions of the line drawings on "Live PCPPEP"'s front and back covers.
