"Kids" is the third single from MGMT's album Oracular Spectacular. It was released as a single on October 13, 2005. The song was the center of a legal dispute with the former President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, over the "insulting" compensation he offered for his illegal use of the song during a party conference.
Rolling Stone's Kevin O'Donnell described the song as, "a noisy New Order-style synth jam".
The version that appears on Oracular Spectacular is updated from earlier versions that appear on the group's EPs Time to Pretend and We Care. A track entitled "Kids" appears on the album Climbing to New Lows.
On December 1, 2009, the track was announced as a nominee at the 52nd Grammy Awards in the category Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocals.
