White Trash were a Scottish pop group who recorded briefly for Apple Records in 1969.

Made up of ex-members of The Pathfinders and The Poets, they were given the name White Trash by Richard DiLello, the Apple liaison officer who wrote a book about his times at the label called The Longest Cocktail Party. DiLello also penned most of the biographies for the label's artists. The name White Trash, was also in use in the United States by Edgar and Johnny Winter but being deemed offensive in Britain, the British White Trash changed their name to the one word, Trash, on their last Apple single.

The band issued only four tracks on two singles on Apple, both A sides were cover versions: Paul McCartney's "Golden Slumbers / Carry That Weight" (before it was released by The Beatles on their forthcoming Abbey Road) and Gerry Goffin and Carole King's "Road to Nowhere". The single "Golden Slumbers / Carry That Weight" made the Top 30 but the band disappeared shortly after the next single.
