"Spin Spin Sugar" is a 1997 single released by Sneaker Pimps from their 1996 debut album Becoming X. The album version is in true Sneaker Pimps style and format. There is a driving bass line produced by a synthesizer keyboard. As the bass drives, there is a second synth loop playing above. The track continues for approximately 3 minutes and 31 seconds. The song was featured in The Girl Next Door soundtrack in its radio edit form. A music video was made for the radio edit version and features the band mates in what appears to be a highly colorized motel room, with many references to the film Psycho.

The song was further popularized in a speed garage remix by Armand Van Helden, which is sometimes credited with breaking speed garage into the mainstream for the first time. The remix appears in Dance Dance Revolution Extreme 2 and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.
