"Fire Woman" is a rock song by British rock band The Cult, written by singer Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy. It was the first single released from their fourth studio album Sonic Temple, and was subsequently featured on all of The Cult's compilation/greatest hits albums, as well as being a steady fixture of the band's live performances. It peaked at number 2 on the US BillboardModern Rock Tracks chart and number 46 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also reached number one on New Zealand's Recorded Music NZ (then RIANZ) chart and number 15 on the UK Singles Chart. Two remixed versions of the song were released as B-sides or promos—the "LA Rock Mix" and the "NYC Rock Mix". Astbury claims the eponymous "fire woman" is a universal symbol, along the lines of a primary element.
This song has also been used during the closing credits of every Australian broadcast of the Formula One season since 2007.
