"Wind It Up (Rewound)" was the fifth single released by the British electronica/rave act The Prodigy on 29 March 1993.

This song, a remix of "Wind It Up", makes extreme use of distortion and noise, and is significantly different from the version featured on Experience. The B-side "We Are the Ruffest" features a sped-up banjo riff.

The Elektra Records version of the single in the United States was never re-released as some of the previous singles were, making it a rarity and much sought after. The Elektra version also exclusively contained four remixes never released on any other work by the band.

The video features the band again on tour in the United States, as in the "Everybody in the Place" video, but this time on the West Coast. There is footage showing local flavour, the band in concert and on the beach.

This was the last Prodigy single in a British rave music vein as Howlett felt he needed to take the music in a new direction (see "One Love").
