"Maniac 2000" (Maniac) is a song by Irish DJ Mark McCabe. It is a medley of Michael Sembello's 1983 song "Maniac" and lyrics co-written by Dublin DJ Al Gibbs, over the instrumental club version of Irish rave act 4-Rhythm's cover of "Maniac", dating back to 1995. McCabe's version was released in Ireland in March 2000 and reached number one in the Irish Singles Chart, staying at that position for ten weeks (March 4 - May 6). It is the fourth best-selling single in the history of the chart.

In 2015, on the 15th Anniversary of its release, Maniac 2000 reached number one on iTunes Ireland again and re-entered the Irish Singles Chart at number 12.[2]
