"Fallen Angel" is a song recorded by Traci Lords, from her debut studio album 1000 Fires (1995). It was released as the second single from the album on August 3, 1995, by Radioactive Records. The Paul Oakenfold remix of the song was also featured on the soundtrack to the film Virtuosity (1995), in which Lords appeared. Written by Lords, Ben Watkins and Johann Bley, and produced by Juno Reactor, "Fallen Angel" is an electronic dance song with techno and trance influences. It also contains elements of ambient music and features Spanish guitar and castanets. Lyrically, the song deals with suicide and was inspired by the death of Kurt Cobain.

It received relatively positive reviews from music critics and noted a moderate commercial success, peaking at number eleven on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs and number 72 on the UK Singles Chart.

Two music videos for the song were released: one featuring the original version of the song and the footage from the film Virtuosity and other directed by Stéphane Sednaoui featuring the Honeymoon Stitch Mix, produced by Chad Smith and Dave Navarro.
