"Eddie's Gun" is the debut single by The Kooks, released in the UK on July 11, 2005. A different version appears on the band's debut album, Inside In/Inside Out. The song is a tongue-in-cheek look at erectile dysfunction, not a tale of lead singer Luke Pritchard's unrequited love for ex-girlfriend Katie Melua, as some (including music magazine NME) have suggested.[1]

The song was featured in the video game College Hoops 2K8.
