"Get Low" is a song by Lil Jon & the East Side Boyz, featuring Ying Yang Twins, released in 2003. It is featured on the 2002 album Kings of Crunk. The song reached number two on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number 20 on the US Hot Digital Songs. It was number five on the top Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs of 2003. It is also known as a breakthrough single for the crunk genre, as the song's success helped it become mainstream.
Three different radio edits of "Get Low" have been released. One had amended lyrics (i.e. "take that thang to the floor, you skank, you skank"), while the other two bleeped out certain profanities. Of the two bleep censored versions, one version left the word "goddamn" intact while the other censored the word.
The song is referenced by Vampire Weekend in their song "Oxford Comma" from their 2008 self-titled album, proclaiming "First the window, then it's to the wall/ Lil' Jon, he always tells the truth." Chris Rock also referenced the song in a sketch about rap music in his special Never Scared, stating that he still loved rap music but was "tired of defending it" in reference to the song's explicit and misogynistic lyrics, saying "We all should be ashamed of ourselves for liking this fucking song!"
A version of the song, edited due to its subject matter and use of profanity, was featured on the Need For Speed Underground soundtrack. The same edited version was featured 9 years later on the Kinect game Dance Central 3.
