"Let the Beat Hit 'Em" is the title of a number-one R&B single by Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam from their 1991 album Straight Outta Hell's Kitchen. The song spent one week at number-one on the US R&B chart (September 14, 1991), reaching #37 on the Billboard Hot 100. On the US dance charts, "Let the Beat Hit 'Em" was the third and final number one for the group. One year later, a Dutch duo produced a 3:40 long remix. There is also an unrelated song with the same title which has appeared in Konami's various Bemani music games.
The song was sampled on the track "Too Much of a Good Thing" from Kylie Minogue's 1991 album Let's Get To It and on the 2005 track "Glücklich" by Heiko & Maiko.
