House of Pain's "Jump Around" is built around three samples:
- The opening horn fanfare is sampled from Bob & Earl's "Harlem Shuffle"
- The melody is built around a sample of Chubby Checker's "Popeye the Hitchhiker"
- The squealing horn in the verses is likely a sample, though from where is subject to debate. The most likely sources appear to be either Junior Walker & the All Stars' "Shoot Your Shot," or Prince's "Gett Off," and members of House of Pain appear to have given conflicting answers to the question. (If the source is Prince, it's not a horn at all, but Prince's voice.)
