Pump Up the Volume

Pump Up the Volume by MARRS was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, October 3, 1987 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This song is made up of about 250 samples. The line, "Pump Up The Volume" came from "I Know You Got Soul" by Eric B. & Rakim, which was released earlier in 1987. The song was so popular it was re-issued over 10 times internationally. In Europe, it was released at a slower tempo than the popular Chicago house sound so it would appeal to the London club crowd who were currently into soul sounds. This was featured in the films My Stepmother Is An Alien (1988), Bright Lights, Big City (1988) and The Replacements (2000).
