Mutiny is the second track on The Family's first and only album The Family. The song was written by Prince, but credited to Jerome Benton. In 2001, a live performance medley by Prince of Controversy and Mutiny was released as part of NPG Music Club Edition # 2.

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking took place in late June, 1984 at the Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse, Eden Prairie, MN, USA (during the same set of sessions that produced High Fashion, River Run Dry, Mazarati (later renamed Susannah's Pajamas), and Desire). St. Paul Peterson overdubbed vocals onto the track in late 1984 - early 1985.

On 23 April, 2012, a 9:54 rehearsal version of Mutiny containing an interpolation of Ice Cream Castles by Prince and the New Power Generation and likely recorded around mid-April 2012 was streamed on drfunkenberry.com to promote the forthcoming Welcome 2 Australia Tour. The track was sent to Paul Peterson prior to its online stream, and fDeluxe (as The Family became known) responded the following week by streaming Hot Summer At Menard's (a spoof commercial for Menards, a mid-west homegoods store, using Prince's Hot Summer as background music) on drfunkenberry.com.
