Loops of Fury is an EP by English big beat duo The Chemical Brothers, released in 1996. It reached number 13 on the UK Singles Chart, but only stayed in the Top 75 for one week.[3]

The title track exemplifies the squelching synth lines and hard-hitting drums that became The Chemical Brothers' sound of the late 1990s, and would be the blueprint of their tracks for years to come. It was used in the PlayStation game Wipeout 2097 and appeared on the accompanying soundtrack. It was also included on the bonus disc of Singles 93–03, and as a B-side to the Japanese edition of "Setting Sun". Because the song segues into the next track on the EP, and fades out on various artist compilation albums, the ending is different on Singles 93–03 and features a vinyl scratching sound at the end.

"Get Up on It Like This" was included in a reworked form on the subsequent album, Dig Your Own Hole.
