Beautiful Midnight was an album released by the Matthew Good Band in 1999, the follow-up to the 1997 album Underdogs. Beautiful Midnight became the band's most successful album, producing four singles and music videos, "Hello Time Bomb", "Load Me Up", "Strange Days", and "The Future is X-Rated". The success of Beautiful Midnight propelled Good to a celebrity status in Canada he eventually grew to loathe, and his interactions with the media throughout the promotional cycle for the record were often strained and unpleasant.

Beautiful Midnight was re-released in 2001 in the United States on Atlantic Records with an altered tracklisting that included remixed songs from Underdogs. Good has referred to it as something of a greatest hits. The album did not achieve the kind of success in America as it did in Canada, partly because of a lack of co-operation on Good's part. He has stated that he intentionally sabotaged the band's career stateside by refusing to play along with the media and music industry in the country. However, other factors were involved, including the band's reluctance to commit to extensive touring of the country.

A number of songs considered for inclusion on Beautiful Midnight were relegated to b-side or unreleased status. "Flashdance II" was eventually released on Loser Anthems, while "Pony Boy", which was recorded for the subsequent album The Audio of Being, remained unreleased until In a Coma in 2005.
