Moral Majority is an unreleased track recorded on 1 May 1983 at Prince’s Kiowa Trail Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota, USA. The track was recorded for possible use on a sophomore Vanity 6 album.

The track is named after the Moral Majority political organization in the United States which had an agenda of evangelical Christian-oriented political lobbying. The group was founded in 1979 by evangelical fundamentalist Southern Baptist pastor, televangelist, and a conservative commentator Jerry Falwell. The song opposed the movement, which clearly stood against the sexuality displayed by the likes of Prince and Vanity 6.

A line from the song is borrowed from Sexuality: "Moral Majority, I wanna let my body be free".
