Jump5 is the self-titled debut album from Christian pop group Jump5. It was released on August 14, 2001 through Sparrow Records. Two re-releases followed: the first featured the "Start Jumpin'" bonus track targeted towards Christian audiences, while the second featured a Radio Disney-targeted version of "Start Jumpin'" with different lyrics plus a cover of Lee Greenwood's God Bless the USA to remember the lives lost after the September 11th attacks. A portion of sales from the second re-release was donated to families who lost a loved one during the attacks on September 11, 2001.

"Spinnin' Around" was released as the album's lead Radio Disney single. A music video for this song was also filmed for release on VHS and DVD home video. The Radio Disney version of "Start Jumpin'" and the track "God Bless the USA" were both released for airplay on Radio Disney. The latter single became a #1 hit on that radio network.
