"Eddie's Gun" is the debut single by The Kooks, released in the UK on 11 July 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.

Other versions[edit]

An alternative version of the song, titled "Eddie's Gun- 2005 Version" is featured on The Kooks' album The Best of... So Far.
