"Jump" is a song by the American rock band Van Halen. It was released in December 1983 as the lead single from their album 1984. It is Van Halen's most successful single to date reaching number one on the US Billboard Hot 100.[1] The song differs from earlier Van Halen songs in that it is driven by a rolling synth line (played on an Oberheim OB-Xa), although the song does contain a guitar solo, which was spliced together from multiple takes.

David Lee Roth dedicated the song to martial artist Benny Urquidez, of whom he was a student.[2]

In Sing, a trio of frogs sing this song as their audition for Buster Moon's singing competition.
