"Slam Dunk (Da Funk)" is a song by British boy band Five, released as their first UK single in late 1997. It appeared on their first album, Five, in early 1998. The song reached number 10 on the UK charts and sold around 500,000 copies worldwide. Featuring a blend of pop and rap, the single was written and produced by Jake Schulze, Max Martin, and Denniz Pop. The track contains a sample of "Clap Your Hands" by Herbie Crichlow.

It was not released in many countries other than the UK and none outside Europe apart from the United States and New Zealand, where it reached number 86 and number 22, respectively. Also in the U.S., the song was chosen as the NBA's new theme song. In other countries, Five's first single was "When the Lights Go Out". The song was featured on the soundtrack to the TV series Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and the Disney Channel Original Movie Smart House.

During the band's greatest hits tour in 2013, Scott Robinson and Abz Love changed the lyrics of the song. Instead of the line "when the 5 of us make 1", Scott would sing "when the 4 of us make 1" acknowledging the fact that J didn't reunite with the band earlier in the year. The line "We got J, A, B Rich, Sean and Scott" was changed to "We got Abz on the mic Rich, Sean and Scott". Upon Abz's departure from the group, rapping duties were handed to Scott and the line would then once again be changed to "We got Rich and Sean and Scott La rock".
