"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 a full-on 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.
