"Aren't You Glad" is a song written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love for American rock band the Beach Boys. It was released in 1967 as the second track on their studio album Wild Honey. Love also sings lead vocal.

In its 1968 review of the LP, Rolling Stone called it a "Lovin' Spoonful type song with the Beach Boys touch". That same year, Rolling Stone editor Gene Scullati said "['Aren't You Glad'] achieves a Miracles style smoothness via a Bobby Goldsboro-type song". In 1979, Byron Preiss wrote that the song "epitomized the simple energy of the album".

An alternate live version was released on the album Live in London (1970).
