"999" is a song by Swedish alternative rock band Kent from their tenth studio album Jag är inte rädd för mörkret (I am not afraid of the dark). It was released as the album's lead single on March 28, 2012.[1] The song peaked at number ten in Sweden, becoming Kent's sixteenth top ten single but their lowest-charting lead single in the band's career.

Kent could have performed the song on the Swedish-Norwegian TV talk show Skavlan SVT, but when SVT wanted Kent to use the shorter version, the band chose instead to not appear at all.
