"Trash" is the first single off the album "Coming Up" by Suede, released on July 29, 1996 on Nude Records. It is the first single in which all the songs on it were written without guitarist Bernard Butler, since Richard Oakes had taken his place. The single, with its infectious chorus and instant accessibility, is tied with "Stay Together" as the band's highest charting. The single signified a dramatic change in the band's sound, as they went from gloomy and theatrical to glam-induced pop.

The video for the title song was directed by David Mould and again features the whole band playing in a crowded room. Yet this time, the people in the room as well as the setting are far more glamorous, as opposed to that of the video for "New Generation." The video also marks the first appearance of new band member, keyboardist Neil Codling.

Various meanings have been determined from the song, but the main themes seem to be about 'outsiders'.

The single version of "Trash" which charted at Number three is different from the version on the Suede "Singles" compilation, where the vocals were re-recorded along with an alternative ending. All four of the singles B-sides were included on Suede's compilation "Sci-Fi Lullabies", which was released the following year, although the version of "Europe is our Playground"was a new version and not the original B-side version found here.
