Cleansing is the fourth album by American heavy metal band Prong. It was produced by Terry Date, whereas all previous albums were produced by Mark Dodson. It features ex-Killing Joke members Paul Raven on bass and John Bechdel on keyboards/programming. Cleansing was Prong's only moderate commercial success. It was reissued in 2008 as a digipack version.

The music video to "Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck" was featured on an episode of Beavis and Butt-head. Dry Kill Logic covered it on their Rot EP, which was only available from Roadrunner Records metal radio mail list. Demon Hunter also covered "Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck" on their album, The Triptych. Six Feet Under covered this song on their third cover album Graveyard Classics 3. Professional wrestler Justin Credible used the track as his entrance theme in Extreme Championship Wrestling and when performing in the independent promotions.

In promotion of the album, Prong embarked on the Cleansing Tour which featured opening acts Clutch and Drown. They also toured with Sepultura and Pantera as an opener for their Chaos A.D. and Far Beyond Driven tours.
