"Rip It Up" is a song from Australian rock band Jet's second album Shine On. It was released 27 November 2006 as the second single from that album in Australia. The song became controversial when the lead singer (at a concert) announced the song was about Paris Hilton. A music video was made for the single. "Rip It Up" was originally titled "Nothing to Lose". It debuted at #67 on the ARIA Singles Chart and peaked at #49 for one week before leaving the top 50 altogether.

The song was also featured on the soundtrack for the 2007 animation film TMNT and in the 2008 comedy Drillbit Taylor. It was also played as a safety-car song in the 2007 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. It was also played at the 2007 AFL Grand Final in the opening ceremony on the day. The song features a line from The Wizard of Oz: "I'm gonna get you my pretty, and your little dog too".

In Australia in 2007, the song was used in Holden commercials.

The song has been used as the theme song to WWE's SummerSlam 2010.

The song was released in the UK as the fourth single from Shine On and a limited edition "7" vinyl was released there. The song failed to chart.
