"Attitude"/"Golden Gun" is a song by Suede, released on 6 October 2003 on Columbia Records. It would be the group's final single before disbanding in late 2003.

A video was made for "Attitude". The video was directed by Lindy Heymann, and features actor John Hurt performing the song in drag.

"Attitude" peaked at #14 on the UK Singles Chart,[1] becoming the group's highest charting single since "She's in Fashion" in 1999.

Some critics viewed the single as an improvement from the group's 2002 album A New Morning, which was considered to be a disappointing album. John Murphy of musicOMH wrote that "'Attitude' is one of their best tunes for years." Adding that it's "the perfect reminder as to why Suede were one of the most intriguing bands of the '90s."[2] "Golden Gun" is used as the theme tune for Channel 4's comedy panel show You Have Been Watching, presented by Charlie Brooker.
