"Happy Days" is the third full-length album by the U.K. band Catherine Wheel, released in 1995 (see 1995 in music). Like its predecessor, "Chrome", it was produced by Gil Norton, and the influences of grunge music and hard rock are prevalent on this album; however, the band does retain some elements of shoegazing, particularly on "Heal" and "Eat My Dust You Insensitive Fuck".

"Judy Staring at the Sun" featured guest vocals by Tanya Donelly. In the single mix, Donelly performs the song's chorus and second verse; on the album, however, her vocals appear only in the chorus, and all verses are sung by Rob Dickinson. The single peaked at number 22 on the "Billboard" Modern Rock Tracks chart; second single "Waydown" peaked at number 15 on the Modern Rock chart and number 24 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

The album peaked at number five on the "Billboard" Top Heatseekers chart, and was also the band's first album to chart on The Billboard 200, peaking at number 163.
