King Kong & D. Jungle Girls is a three-person Italian Eurobeat/Hi-NRG group featuring Andrea (King Kong), Alexandra and Roberta (D. Jungle Girls) formed in 1987. To date, they have released two albums (in 1989 and 1991) as well as two compilation CDs and several singles. Several incarnations of their songs "Boom Boom Dollar" and "Walkie Talkie" have been featured in the Dance Dance Revolution video games and Dancemania compilation series and its sub-series including Speed. The English language lyrics to these songs, which bear a striking similarity to Engrish, are often misheard and largely incomprehensible to native speakers, a trait it shares with current Eurobeat music.

Name inconsistencies[edit]

The "Jungle Girls" part of the group's name is often printed differently in English, most likely due to translation issues. While it seems to make sense (the actual printed name is "D. Jungle Girls"), it has also been printed as "The D.Jungle Girls" and most often, "D.J.Ungle Girls".
