The Birthday Party is a 1985 live video by Motörhead. It features the band's 10th anniversary show at the Hammersmith Odeon in London, England. During the performance of "Motörhead" the band were joined onstage by all of the past members (with the exception of Larry Wallis), and Thin Lizzy bassist Phil Lynott.

It was also released in CD format in 1990 by Enigma Records, albeit with an edited track listing and running order.
