"Triple Trouble" is a song American hip hop group the Beastie Boys, released as the second single from their sixth studio album To the 5 Boroughs. It heavily samples "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugarhill Gang,[1] and interpolates lyrics from "Double Trouble at the Amphitheatre" by Double Trouble.[1]

The music video for "Triple Trouble" was directed by MCA, under his alias Nathaniel Hornblower. Kanye West made a cameo at the end of the video.

The bassline of the song was also used as the "showboat" song on soccer AM, where clips of footballers showing their skills would be showcased before the common people.

The song was used to promote the third season of the HBO series Bored to Death.
