"Jump Around" is a hit single by the band House of Pain, produced by DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill. This song became a hit in 1992, reaching Number 3 in the USA. A 1993 re-release of the song in the UK, where the original 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 UK as a club classic. Blender's 500 Greatest Songs Since You Were Born listed it at number 325.
The song is also famously played between the third and fourth quarters of the University of Wisconsin-Madison home football games, during which the entire student section (15-20 thousand people) jump around to the first verse and chorus of the song. The song has become a long-standing tradition in the student section and the UW student body; the song was not played during Camp Randall Stadium construction due to fears of structural instability accompanying the simultaneous jumping of so many people, almost causing riots. It has been played at every home game since. The song's title is displayed on unofficial Wisconsin Badgers clothing and apparel and even on some of a Madison-based banks' credit cards.
