"Goodwill City" is a 1989 single by Scottish alternative rock group Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie. It was their final single release for EMI's Capitol Records, and released as a double A-side with a cover version of Iggy & The Stooges' "I'm Sick of You". "Goodwill City" was written by Martin Metcalfe and Derek Kelley, in response to their hometown of Edinburgh's reaction to the 1980s AIDS epidemic.

"Goodwill City" was taken from the band's debut album Good Deeds and Dirty Rags which was released the earlier that year. In 1991, after Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie had signed to Gary Kurfirst's Radioactive Records, "Goodwill City" was remixed and featured on their debut international album release, also titled Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie.

In 1993, Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie self-released a "Goodwill City (Live)" EP featuring live versions of some of their tracks, and one studio track, "Working on a Shoe-fly", which was cut from the track list of their 1991 second album Hammer and Tongs.
