Miss Understood is an unreleased song by The Family recorded on 10 August 1984, at Flying Cloud Drive Warehouse in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, and was intended for The Family album. Susannah Melvoin, who sang lead vocals on the track, didn't like the track, which was a cheery pop song unlike other tracks by The Family, and argued with Prince to not include it on the album. According to engineer Susan Rogers, Prince defended the track and even threatened to find someone else to sing in the band instead of Susannah Melvoin, but ultimately the track was not included on the album as it was released.
