"Westside" is a song by the British rock band Athlete from their debut album, Vehicles and Animals. It was also released 23 June 2003 as the fifth single from that album, peaking at #42 in the UK Singles Chart (see 2003 in British music). The song originally appeared as the lead track on their debut EP.

The song itself could be seen as intentionally ironic with its main lyric of "Wherever you look, everybody wants to be part of the rock scene", as at the time of the single's release, processed pop was dominating the charts.
