"Jump Around" is a hit song by American hip hop group House of Pain, produced by DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill, who has also covered the song. It became a hit in 1992, reaching number 3 in the group's native United States. A 1993 re-release of the song in the United Kingdom, where the initial release had been a minor hit, peaked at number 8. On VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s, "Jump Around" was featured at position 24. It was number 66 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop. The song is popular among dance hall DJs and is widely regarded in the United Kingdom as a club classic. Blender's 500 Greatest Songs Since You Were Born listed it at number 325.
The song features a distinctive horn fanfare intro, sampled from Bob & Earl's 1963 track "Harlem Shuffle". The song also samples "Popeye (The Hitchhiker)" by Chubby Checker, but it is best known for a high-pitched squealing tenor saxophone sound that appears at the beginning of almost every bar—66 times in the course of the recording—sampled from the opening of the Junior Walker & the All Stars track "Shoot Your Shot".
