"Happy Hour" is a 1986 single by British Indie rock band The Housemartins. It was the third single from the album London 0 Hull 4 and reached number three in the UK Singles Chart. It was written on Wednesday 22 January 1986 - the same day Me and the Farmer was penned. 
The band's first big hit, it stayed on the singles chart for 13 weeks, peaking in the week of 28 June 1986. The song also enjoyed exposure on United States college radio.
Rolling Stone noted that despite "irrepressibly giddy music hooks", the song's "sobering" lyrics "hammer away at the hypocrisy and sexism of young British business types on the move."
On their 1992 album, Gordon, the Barenaked Ladies paid tribute to this song by breaking into it at the end of the song "Hello City".
The video for the song, set in a pub, featured animated plasticine figures of the band members. Comedian Phill Jupitus makes an appearance in the music video, reading a newspaper.
It is used as an end credits song for the 2013 film The World's End starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost
