"The Bomb! (These Sounds Fall into My Mind)" is a house music track by The Bucketheads, released in 1995. "The Bomb!" was later dubbed into the project's sole album All in the Mind. It was a commercial hit in the UK in winter/spring 1995, reaching No. 5 on the singles chart, while it peaked in the US at No. 49 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Produced by Masters at Work member Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez, and featuring samples from Chicago's "Street Player" from their 1979 album Chicago 13, the subtitle of the song is a mondegreen; the actual lyrics taken from the sample are "Street sounds swirling through my mind..." Also sampled are "The Preacher Man" (1993) by Green Velvet, "Music" (1977) by Montreal Sound, and a loop from "Holy Ghost" from the album Money Talks (1978) by The Bar-Kays. The accompanying video was featured on the Beavis and Butt-head episode "Prank Call," on January 28, 1996. The track once served as the entrance music for former World bantamweight and featherweight boxing champion Prince Naseem Hamed, and is featured on the soundtrack for the 2010 film The Switch.
Charles Aaron from Spin described the song as "More than a Box novelty, "The Bomb!" is essential '90s funk, a house party on the last car of the D to the A train winding its way from Brooklyn up to Manhattan's disco meat-packing district with conductor Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez mixing electro, hip-hop, house, and Chicago (the group)."
Mixmag ranked the song number 60 in its 100 Greatest Dance Singles Of All Time list in 1996, adding:
"A quarter of an hour's worth of mirrorball mayhem, Kenny 'Dope' Gonzales' The Bomb is the ultimate disco cutup track. Shatteringly simple, the genius of The Bomb lies in the way it builds up your anticipation with a protracted burst of hard jacking drums and atonal honking before the perfect disco sample soars away into the distance. A massive hit when Positiva licensed it in early 1995, The Bomb kick-started the trend for raiding old disco 12s. Dozens of producers followed its lead, but none of them ever equalled the definitive original article."
DJ Magazine ranked it number 95 in their list of Top 100 Club Tunes in 1998.
