"Steve McQueen" is the second album by English pop band Prefab Sprout, released in June 1985. It was released in the U.S. as "Two Wheels Good" due to a legal conflict with the estate of American actor Steve McQueen. The album reached #21 on the UK album chart and #178 on the Billboard 200.

On April 2 2007 it was reissued as a "Legacy edition" double cd, featuring a remastered version of the original album and a bonus disc featuring acoustic versions of the songs recorded by Paddy McAloon in 2006.
