"Naïve" charted at number five on the UK Singles Chart. The best-selling single of the band's career, it was the UK's nineteenth best selling single of 2006. It also did relatively well in New Zealand, reaching number 15 on the combined sales/airplay RIANZ chart. The song additionally charted in the United States, peaking at number 22 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart.
Lily Allen did a cover of "Naïve" for a live session on The Jo Whiley Show. Allen's version was featured on the soundtrack for the film Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging. The song has also been covered by former Sugababes member Mutya Buena as a B-side for her debut single "Real Girl". It placed at #87 in Triple J's Hottest 100 of the Past 20 Years (1993-2013), being one of a few songs to debut in the countdown without having made a yearly list beforehand.
