"Gold Guns Girls" is the fourth single from Canadian rock group Metric's fourth studio album Fantasies. The lyrics were inspired by the 1983 movie, Scarface.

Metric also released an acoustic version of the song on their EP Plug In Plug Out.
Promotion and release
The song was the opening and ending theme for the 2009 animated feature film Totally Spies: The Movie and the 2009 live-action film Zombieland. It was also featured in the video games FIFA 10 and Test Drive Unlimited 2.
The music video for "Gold Guns Girls" was shot by Eady Bros and Metric. It is presented in black-and-white film, and features the band racing around the snowy New York City streets. Every so often, a band member will stop at an instrument on the sidewalk and play it (Haines would stop at a mic and sing).
