"The Golden Years" is a live EP by the British heavy metal group Motörhead. Released following the success of their Bomber album, it reached number 8 on the UK charts in May 1980.

There was a distinct lack of radio play for the single, the radio stations claiming the vocals were too low in the mix, so "Leaving Here" was remixed and issued to radio stations as a 12" coupled with "Stone Dead Forever". Despite the lack of radio exposure, on May 1 the band managed an appearance on the BBC TV weekly chart show "Top of the Pops" to promote it.

This EP is currently available as bonus tracks on the 1979 album "Bomber", and "Leaving Here" was included on the "No Remorse" compilation album.
