"Let's Get Ready to Rhumble" is a 1994 song by British duo Ant & Dec, who at the time were known as PJ & Duncan. The song was released in the United Kingdom on 11 July 1994 as the third single from their debut studio album Psyche. The song was written by Nicky Graham, Deni Lew and Mike Olton, and produced by Nicky Graham. It peaked at number 9 in the UK Singles Chart in 1994, and was later #1 almost two decades after its original chart appearance. The song includes a repeatedly-used sample of Michael Buffer saying his trademark catchphrase.
The single was re-released in March 2013, with royalties from sales donated to the charity ChildLine. The song peaked at number one on the UK Singles Chart in its first week of new release, becoming their first ever single to reach that spot. The song was performed on Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway. The single was re-released in February 2014.
The song also featured twice in the 2015 BBC Two comedy-drama A Gert Lush Christmas. First in the scene Dan (Russell Howard) and Lisa (Hannah Britland) are singing and dancing to it playing on their car's radio while driving from London to Bristol to meet Dan's family and the second time later in the film when Dan hears it on the radio in his family's house.
Ant & Dec celebrated the 100th episode of CD:UK in 2000 by performing the song once again, years after retiring from the music industry, after a viewer vote where 83% requested it. In March 2013, Ant & Dec performed the song as the closing act for the "End of the Show-Show" segment of their ITV show Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway at the end of a series of performances by The Big Reunion special invitees. In the segment, Blue, Atomic Kitten and Five also performed.
On 23 July 1994, the song entered the UK Singles Chart at number 18, it climbed seven places to number 11 in its second week and climbed to number 9 in its third week. After Ant & Dec performed the song on Saturday Night Takeaway on 23 March 2013, the song topped the UK Singles Chart on 31 March 2013, as predicted after charting at number one in the Midweek Chart Update on 27 March 2013.
