10. House of Pain - 'Jump Around'

Los Angeles hip-hop trio House of Pain made their mark in 1992 with the song "Jump Around." The track samples a horn from Bob and Earl's 1963 classic, "Harlem Shuffle." It became one of the definitive party anthems of the decade, but the group didn't even come close to releasing a successful follow-up. They split in 1996. Frontman Everlast had a big solo hit two years later with "What It's Like," off his acclaimed album Whitey Ford Sings The Blues. Around that time, DJ Lethal joined Limp Bizkit – House of Pain reformed in 2010 for live shows, but DJ Lethal couldn't make the shows because Limp Bizkit was back on tour. He recently parted ways with Fred Durst and company, though, so he should have time to spin "Jump Around" at future House of Pain gigs.
