Steve McQueen is the second album by English pop band Prefab Sprout, released in June 1985. It was released in the United States 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 #180 on the Billboard 200.
The cover of the album is a reference to Steve McQueen's lifelong passion for motorcycles and the 1963 film The Great Escape, starring McQueen and featuring prominent motorcycle chase scenes (with stunts performed by himself).
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.
Critically acclaimed at the time it reached #4 in the 1985 NME end of year poll for best albums and #28 on the Pazz & Jop poll.
It has subsequently featured in a number of all time polls for best album including #47 in a poll by The Times in 1993, #90 in a poll by Mojo in 1995 and #61 in a 1997 poll by The Guardian.
