"Naïve" is a song by British indie rock band The Kooks. It was released on 27 March 2006 as the fourth single from their debut studio album, Inside In/Inside Out (2006).

"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 21 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart.

In popular culture
"Naïve" was featured on the soundtrack for the film 17 Again (2009) and the One Tree Hill episode "Resolve", as well as on the show's third soundtrack, The Road Mix and the 2009 video game Lego Rock Band.

Actress Jodie Comer stated in a 2018 interview that "Naïve" was her favourite song as a teenager, and that she considered having the song's title tattooed across the back of her neck before realising it was a bad idea.
