"All Rise" is the debut single by English boy band Blue. The song, which plays out a court proceeding, instantly became a hit worldwide and helped the group break the charts in the UK and Australia. The track was released in May 2001 and peaked at number four in the UK, number three in Australia, number one in New Zealand and number 15 in Ireland. The song has received a Silver certification for sales of over 200,000 copies in the UK.

Some of the instrumental melody is reminiscent of an older song, Multicyde feat. Anéa - "Not for the Dough", that has the same melody as the theme of the 1975 film The Pinchcliffe Grand Prix.[1] In 2007, Chinese vocal duo Phoenix Legend were accused of plagiarising "All Rise" for their hit song "On the Moon", a claim disputed by the duo. However, "All Rise" was a popular song in China before Phoenix Legend formed.[2]
