Come da titolo, Heroin è una canzone sull'uso ed abuso dell'eroina, composta da Lou Reed nel 1964 ed incisa dai Velvet Underground con l'album The Velvet Underground & Nico (1967). La sua struttura è di una semplicità disarmante, essendo interamente composta da soli due accordi: riguardo a questo, è esemplare la descrizione apparsa all'epoca sul magazine Rolling Stone "non ci vuole molto per fare una grande canzone". Oltre all'originale furono incise altre 2 differenti versioni di Heroin, ciascuna registrata ad un anno di distanza ('65 e '66).
