Golden Feelings is the unofficial debut studio album by American musical artist Beck, released in 1993 by Sonic Enemy. The album showcases his roots in the anti-folk scene.

Initially available only in limited quantities on cassette, Sonic Enemy remastered the album and re-released it on CD in mid-1999.[3] Beck was upset that they did so without his permission and, after he made his displeasure known, Sonic Enemy ceased to press any more copies.[4] Only 2,000 were made, causing the CD to become quite valuable.[5]

AllMusic described the album as "an extremely interesting, entertaining, and humorous document that proves that from the start Beck had his heart set on making experimentation his only gimmick."[1]
