Music video[edit]

Pae and Sarah performing the Melbourne Shuffle on the streets of Melbourne, Australia.

The video for the single features footage of a live Scooter concert in Differdange (Luxembourg), dancers Pae and Sarah performing the Melbourne Shuffle on the streets of Melbourne (Australia) and car scenes of H.P. Baxxter, the frontman of Scooter, recorded on Majorca (Spain).

On 30 July 2009, during the video shoot, H. P. Baxxter was almost a victim of a car bomb attack.[4] Band member Michael Simon posted on his Myspace page that Baxxter was not injured in the attack. According to Simon a theft occurred, and Baxxter went to report it to the police. When the police sent him away to find a translator from German to Spanish, Baxxter left, and within minutes the bomb exploded.[5]

The video premiered on the website of Kontor Records on 7 August 2009. An extended version of the video was released to coincide with the single on 13 August 2009. This was the first extended video released by Scooter.[6]

Samples[edit]

  • The spoken words "J'adore hardcore" in the track are performed by French fan Maddy Julien. Julien was contacted via the social networking site Facebook, and was asked to record the sample. She was the first French vocalist in any Scooter song.
  • The chorus melody in "J'adore Hardcore" samples the song "Chase The Sun" by Planet Funk, taken from the 2002 album "Non Zero Sumness".
  • "J'adore Hardcore" samples the 2009 song "Lullaby" by Activator and uses a sample that is heavily inspired by the melody of the track "I Just Can't Stop" by The Pitcher. The refrain is inspired by "Düp Düp" by Mickie Krause ("Düp Düp" also samples "Chase The Sun" by Planet Funk). "Düp Düp" was inspired by the Scooter track "The Shit That Killed Elvis", taken from the 2007 album The Ultimate Aural Orgasm. A small part of the lyrics in the beginning of the track are taken from "Proud To Be Loud" by Tat & Zat (AKA Tatanka and Zatox).
  • "Dushbag" also samples "Lullaby" by Activator, and Scooter's song "This Is A Monstertune" from their 1996 album Our Happy Hardcore.
  • One sound effect in the song was taken from Trans-X's song Living on Video (the chip type effect).
