Kool and the Gang, 'Jungle Boogie'
With the gauntlet thrown, Tarantino has the audacity to change the station midway through "Misirlou" – literally with radio fuzz – to tune in to Kool and the Gang's horn-heavy 1973 barnburner "Jungle Boogie." Featuring frog-like rap by the band's roadie, Don "Get Up With the Get Down" Boyce, the track is every bit as frenetic as the surf rocker but with more groove. Outside of Pulp Fiction, the song, which appeared on Kool's Wild and Peaceful LP, experienced second life as a sample on records by everyone from the Beastie Boys to Madonna. Tarantino said he picked the track because it was "intense" has had a "Seventies feel."
