"Step Up" is a single by hard rock band Drowning Pool. It was originally released on The Punisher: The Album in March 2004 and appeared in the film's end credits. It was included on Drowning Pools second studio album, Desensitized, the following month. This served as the band's first single with new frontman Jason "Gong" Jones and introduced him to many fans.

A music video was produced for "Step Up" which largely focuses on the band living a luxurious lifestyle at a mansion poolside. It received significant airplay on Headbangers Ball upon release. Former Evanescence guitarist Ben Moody makes a cameo appearance in the video.

Aside from The Punisher soundtrack, "Step Up" was also used on the soundtrack of NFL Street 2.

Similar to the Desensitized album cover design, the "Step Up" single features porn star Jesse Jane.

"Step Up" was used as the main theme song for the World Wrestling Entertainment PPV WrestleMania XX.

"Step Up" is now the only song from "Desensitized" to still be played live by the band.
