There is another song with the same rhythm as Jump Around that I totally think that kicks @$$! if a Wikipedian can name it, send me a message about it. And also, mention it in the Jump Around article. --TheSamurai 03:12, 9 Apr 2005 (UTC)
The article mentions "Just as in Madison, during the song the entire student section jumps up and down," and that is the only reference to Camp Randall Stadium (U of Wisconsin, Madison, WI) where Jump Around was covertly started then later sanctioned in the mid-1990s, and has a noteworthy and controversial history there. There is a Wikipedia article on Camp Randall Stadium which could be linked.
The beat to this song sounds a lot like David Bowie's and Queen's Under Pressure to me. Is it a sample, and was this ever an issue as in the case of Vanilla Ice's Ice Ice Baby? 22.214.171.124 (talk) 23:03, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
Yes, Vanilla Ice ended up having to pay Queen for using the music from Under Pressure. Not sure how much, or whether he/they did so voluntarily or were required to. I'm guessing Kid Rock is paying the estate of Warren Zevon for using the music to Werewolves of London these days, too. Posthocergopropterhoc (talk) 04:28, 10 September 2008 (UTC)
No, this is not a sample of Under Pressure. The case never went to court because V. Ice obviously used Under Pressure without concent or license. He was ordered to pay an undisclosed (but likely very high) amount to Queen and David Bowie. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 23:18, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
