Fight was an American heavy metal band assembled by Judas Priest frontman, Rob Halford, after his departure from that band in 1992. He took with him from Judas Priest and Racer X drummer Scott Travis, though Travis also continued to drum for Judas Priest. The line-up was completed by Russ Parrish on guitar, Brian Tilse on guitar and keyboards and Jack "Jay Jay" Brown on bass guitar.

The band's musical proposal was quite different from Halford's former band; it was a mix between the classic metal sound created by Judas Priest and the new, edgier sound of bands like Pantera.

In 2007, Rob Halford's Metal God Entertainment released War of Words – The Film on DVD.
