Pioneers Who Got Scalped is an anthology by the rock band Devo, released in 2000. 17 of the 50 tracks are previously unissued on CD, including b-sides, remixes, soundtrack songs and spoken word material. The band recorded the long-time concert favorite "The Words Get Stuck In My Throat" in the studio for the first time, specifically for inclusion on this compilation.

The original Rhino package used lenticular printing to create "animated" front and back covers. The front cover animation showed tomahawks flying towards the band members who are tied to stakes and which cause their energy dome hats to fly off their heads. The back cover shows the animated "music executives" throwing the tomahawks. The "music executives" on the back cover were Rhino Records employees. The Rhino employees pictured, from front to back, are David Dorn (from, at the time, the Publicity Department), Arny Schorr (from Rhino Home Video), Mark Pinkus (from Special Markets), Bill Smith (from Radio Promotion), and Bob O'Neill (from Business Affairs).

The liner notes are by music historian Andy Zax, most famous for being the "Music Geek" on the Comedy Central program Beat The Geeks.
