"Fun" is the name of a House/Garage single (and popular club anthem) recorded by Da Mob, an American House music collective that featured producers Erick Morillo, José Nunez, Carlos "DJ Sneak" Sosa, singer/songwriter Karen "Dajae" Gordon (who wrote the single with the trio) and lead vocalist Jocelyn Brown, who chanted the song's main lyrics, "We're gonna have some fun tonight!" throughout the entire song.

The single reached number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart the week of April 18, 1998 and spent one week there. It is also the first release single from Morillo's Subliminal Records label, which he also launched in 1998. At first, "Fun" was supposed to feature Dajae as the lead vocalist, which drew positive response via test pressings and buzz across the Atlantic, but Dajae refused to sign the contract with Subliminal, and Brown was brought in to re-record the vocals. Brown’s collaboration with Subliminal is known as "Da Mob," but in other countries she is listed alongside the act as the featured singer.
