"Fire Water Burn" is the first single from The Bloodhound Gang's 1996 (re-released in 1998) album One Fierce Beer Coaster. The chorus of the song is derived from the song "The Roof Is on Fire" by Rock Master Scott & the Dynamic Three, yet sung considerably slower. The song ranked among the top songs on the Billboard Charts in 1997, reaching #18 on the Modern Rock Tracks, and also #28 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks. It made number 4 on the Dutch Top 40. "Fire Water Burn" was remixed for the CD single by God Lives Underwater. It appeared in the soundtrack of Some Girl, Fahrenheit 9/11, The Nutty Professor and CKY4.

"Fire Water Burn" makes a variety of references to numerous figures from popular culture. These include the musicians Jimmy Pop, Barry White, Frank Black, Marvin Gaye, Martha Raye, Lawrence Welk, Kurt Cobain and Jimi Hendrix, the fictional characters Han Solo and Webster, the television show Kojak, the actor Emmanuel Lewis, the author Mark Twain, and U.S. president John F. Kennedy.

Additionally, the song makes a modified quote from the Pixies song "Monkey Gone to Heaven", with the lyrics, "if man is five and the devil is six then that must make me seven/ this honky's gone to heaven" rather than "so if man is five/ then the devil is six/ then God is seven/ this monkey's gone to heaven". The song is also musically similar to the latter half of the Pixies song "The Happening" from their album Bossanova.
