Icon is a compilation album by John Lennon, released in 2014. It is part of the budget line Icon album series issued by Universal Music Enterprises since 2010.

The album's closing track, "Give Peace a Chance", lists John Lennon and Yoko Ono as writers for the first time, continuing the evolution of songwriting credits for this song, which began as Lennon-McCartney when originally issued as a single in 1969 and then changed to Lennon alone after the Lennon Legend: The Very Best of John Lennon compilation in 1997.
