"Fury" is a song by Prince, from his 2006 album 3121.[1] The single was debuted live on Saturday Night Live on February 4, 2006. It was also part of Prince's four song set at the 2006 BRIT Awards.

"Fury" is an "energy song", resembling those of the psychedelic rock influences performed by Jimi Hendrix. Its instrumental chorus consists of a repeated 4-chord keyboard segment. The track features live drumming and strong guitar work throughout, closing with continuous guitar noise. The title comes from the line "ain't no fury like a woman scorned", which itself is a lightly changed version of the old phrase "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned".

The song was released as the third single from 3121 in the UK on May 30, 2006, and reached number sixty on the UK Singles Chart. The single's B-sides are a live version of the song, and "Te Amo Corazón", both performed at the 2006 BRIT Awards. In addition to being released as a CD single, it was also released on a 12" vinyl single as a picture disc. The CD single also had a video of the live performances. The single's cover is also reminiscent of the psychedelic rock era.
