"All Rise" is a song by English boy band Blue. It was released in May 2001 as the lead single from their debut album of the same name. The song instantly became a hit worldwide and helped the group break the charts in Europe and Oceania. It peaked at number four in the UK, number three in Australia, number-one in New Zealand and number 15 in Ireland. The song has received a Silver certification for sales of over 200,000 copies in the UK.

"All Rise" was co-written and produced by Norwegian production team Stargate, who went on to produce several of Blue's biggest hits from 2001 to 2003. The song contains elements from the theme from The Pinchcliffe Grand Prix (1975), composed by Bent Fabricius-Bjerre. Stargate previously used the sample in their production of "Not for The Dough" (1999) by Norwegian hip hop group Multicyde.

The band performed the song during the first series of The Big Reunion in 2013.[1]

The song uses a courtroom as a metaphor for revealing evidence of a significant other doing the narrator wrong.

Controversy[edit]

In 2007, Chinese vocal duo Phoenix Legend were accused of plagiarising "All Rise" for their hit song "On the Moon"/"Above The Moonlight", a claim disputed by the duo as the lyrics were written in 1999.[2]
