Thela Hun Ginjeet is a single by the band King Crimson, released in 1981. Its tracks are from the album Discipline (1981). The song name is an anagram of "heat in the jungle", which is a reference to crime in the city. (The term "heat" is often used in American slang to refer to the police.)

While most of the instruments are in 4/4 time, Robert Fripp's electric guitar plays during part of the song in 7/8 time, creating an unusual effect. In the middle of the song, voice recordings are heard. Adrian Belew talks about his experience with members of New York City street gangs and the police, trying to get voice recordings for the song.
