There's always been a bit of controversy about the song and it's lyrics. The band have always denied that the song is actually about heroin use and drug trading.
When asked the band would regularly state that each individual will hear different things in the lyrics. Another theory is that the lyrics refer to front man Hugh Corwell's Mediterranean girlfriend, who had golden brown skin.
The song was released way back in 1981 and was one of The Stranglers greatest hits.
So what's your take on Golden Brown, is it about heroin or a girl?
