"Everybody in the Place" is the second official single released by the British electronic dance band The Prodigy from their debut album "Experience"

The "Fairground Remix" version is featured on the single. The version on the album is the "155 & Rising Version", which is significantly longer and faster in beats per minute than the original mix (hence its name). It was released on 30 December 1991 through XL Recordings in the UK. The single peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart, beaten to number one by the re-release of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" after the death of Freddie Mercury. The original CD single was released with five tracks, which went against British chart regulations. The track "Rip up the Sound System" was removed on the re-issue to comply with the chart regulations, but is still available on the 12" vinyl. The cover features a photograph of the now dismantled Corkscrew roller coaster at Alton Towers.

The song was released six months later on 18 June 1992 as a double A-side with first single "Charly" through Elektra Records in the United States.[3] The single is featured on the band's greatest hits compilation "Their Law: The Singles 1990-2005".

The original version of this song is featured on the "What Evil Lurks" EP.

The Dutch DJ "Hardwell" samples the vocal parts in his song "Everybody is in the Place". [4]

Music video[edit]

The video features the band on their first United States tour dancing on streets of New York City. The song ends with a sample of The Doors' "Riders on the Storm", but because the music video uses the Fairground edit, the sample is heard between another sample.
