Funkcronomicon is a 1995 various artists collection of tracks produced by Bill Laswell under the title Axiom Funk. It is a 2-CD set that was released by Island Records. The album features heavy participation from various members of Parliament-Funkadelic, to the degree that "Funkcronomicon" is widely considered to be a full fledged P-Funk album. The album features what may be Pedro Bell's last authentic artistic renderings, as well as P-Funk guitarist Eddie Hazel's last recordings. The album is comprised of newly recorded tracks, as well as tracks that have been featured on other Bill Laswell productions.

The artwork was by Pedro Bell & Seitu Hayden.
