«Voodoo People» is a song by The Prodigy, released as their eighth single on 12 September 1994. It was the third single from the album Music For the Jilted Generation and was released as a 12″ single and its own EP in the United States through Mute Records.

The spoken parts («… the voodoo who do what you don’t dare do people…») are taken from «The Shalimar,» written and performed by Gylan Kain, one of The Last Poets.

The main riff in the song is based on a sample of the Nirvana song «Very Ape» from their third studio album In Utero.
