"Fine Time" is a song by New Order released in 1988 and the first single from their 1989 album Technique. The B-side "Fine Line" is simply the A-side without Bernard Sumner's vocals.

On the naming of the track, Stephen Morris said, "my car had been towed away and I had to remind myself to go and pay the fine. I just wrote "Fine Time" on this piece of paper to remind myself to go get it and thought, that's a good title."[3]
