"Violence" is a song by Grimes and American DJ i_o, it was released on September 5, 2019, as the lead single from her fifth studio album Miss Anthropocene.

On September 3, 2019, she posted on Instagram a painting of an angelic figure whose hands touch a sword pierced into a planet resembling earth. This post was accompanied by the caption "A new way to die! 2 days." This caption led publications to believe it would be the name of the song. But a day later she clarified the actual song title a day later. The track features American DJ i_o as the producer of the song. She revealed that the song was originally intended for the unnamed sixth album, but Grimes decided to move it to Miss Anthropocene because the track "feels good". She also revealed in a 2020 interview for Pitchfork that this song was included in order to replace "Darq Souls", which according to her was «theoretically the best song on the record but it became an engineering nightmare so I was not able to finish it.
