Good Timin': Live at Knebworth, England 1980 is a CD and DVD release of a concert performance by the Beach Boys at Knebworth, Hertfordshire in June 1980. Because of Brian Wilson's limited tour schedule with the Beach Boys, Knebworth is the only live album to feature all six Beach Boys—Brian Wilson, Dennis Wilson, Carl Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine and Bruce Johnston. The concert was also their last major UK performance together.

Recorded while promoting the album Keepin' the Summer Alive, Good Timin': Live at Knebworth England 1980 was first issued in the UK in 2002 and the following year in the US, both through the band's Brother Records imprint with independent distribution.

The album included an impromptu version of "Happy Birthday" sung for Brian, whose birthday was one day prior to the concert. The album has been re-released on May 29, 2012 as a two CD set.[2]
