Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
"diversion, amusement, mirthful sport," 1727, earlier "a cheat, trick" (c.1700), from verb fun (1680s) "to cheat, hoax," which is of uncertain origin, probably a variant of Middle English fonnen "befool" (c.1400; see fond). Scantly recorded in 18c. and stigmatized by Johnson as "a low cant word." Older senses are preserved in phrase to make fun of (1737) and funny money "counterfeit bills" (1938, though this use of the word may be more for the sake of the rhyme). See also funny. Fun and games "mirthful carryings-on" is from 1906.
1680s, "to cheat;" 1833 "to make fun, jest, joke," from fun (n.). Related: Funning.

Fun is a 1994 independent drama film starring Alicia Witt and Renée Humphrey, and directed by Rafal Zielinski. Both Witt and Humphrey won a Special Jury Recognition award at the 1994 Sundance Film Festival. The film centers on the murder of an elderly woman by two mentally unstable girls. The film is based on a play by James Bosley, which was in turn based on an actual murder that took place in Auburn, California in 1983 by 14-year-old Shirley Wolf and 15-year-old Cindy Collier. The film's title is derived from a diary entry by Wolf, which read: "Today, Cindy and I ran away and killed an old lady. It was lots of fun."

"Fun" is the name of a House/Garage single (and popular club anthem) recorded by Da Mob, an American House music collective that featured producers Erick Morillo, José Nunez, Carlos "DJ Sneak" Sosa, singer/songwriter Karen "Dajae" Gordon (who wrote the single with the trio) and lead vocalist Jocelyn Brown, who chanted the song's main lyrics, "We're gonna have some fun tonight!" throughout the entire song.
The single reached number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart the week of April 18, 1998 and spent one week there. It is also the first release single from Morillo's Subliminal Records label, which he also launched in 1998. At first, "Fun" was supposed to feature Dajae as the lead vocalist, which drew positive response via test pressings and buzz across the Atlantic, but Dajae refused to sign the contract with Subliminal, and Brown was brought in to re-record the vocals. Brown’s collaboration with Subliminal is known as "Da Mob," but in other countries she is listed alongside the act as the featured singer.

Fun (stylized as fun.) is an American indie pop band based in New York City. It was formed by Nate Ruess, former lead singer of The Format, with Andrew Dost of Anathallo and Jack Antonoff of Steel Train. Fun has released two albums: Aim and Ignite in August 2009 and Some Nights in February 2012.
The band is best known for three hit singles from Some Nights: Grammy Award-winning " We Are Young" (featuring Janelle Monáe), " Some Nights", and " Carry On". "We Are Young" reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and Digital Songs charts. It also peaked at number one in the United Kingdom. "Some Nights" was released as the album's second single in June 2012, peaking at number three on the Hot 100 chart and becoming Fun's second Top 10 single, as well as the band's second song to reach platinum status in the United States.
On February 10, 2013, Fun won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist and the Grammy Award for Song of the Year for "We Are Young". Additionally, Fun was a nominee for four other Grammy Awards: Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo or Group Performance (both for "We Are Young") along with Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album (both for Some Nights).
Fun is an album by singer-songwriter Daniel Johnston. It was his first major label release, as well as his only album for Atlantic Records. The album was produced by Butthole Surfers member Paul Leary.
In 1993, Johnston, gaining popularity, was offered a contract under Elektra Records; although a beneficial agreement for Johnston, he refused, since Metallica, a band Johnston believed to be possessed by Satan, was under the label. Johnston, now under the impression that his manager was also possessed by Satan, fired him and continued to look elsewhere for a music label. Johnston signed under Atlantic Records, and released Fun in 1994 while housed in a mental institution. The album was a commercial failure, and in 1996, two years after the release, Johnston was dropped from the Atlantic Records label.
