"Girls" was the fourteenth single released by the British electronic band The Prodigy on 30 August 2004. It was the first single from the album Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned. "Girls" peaked at number 19 on the British charts.

The single's music video was directed by Mat Cook and Julian House, who also designed the artwork for the album and single. It featured experimental computer graphics with various psychedelic themes.

The sample used in the hook is re-made but taken from the Broken Glass single "Style of the Street" and also the song samples D. Train "You're The One For Me".
