"Jump" is a song recorded by the rock group Van Halen. "Jump" is the only single the group released in their career to reach #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

"Jump" was released in 1984 as the second track on the album 1984. The song breaks the mould of earlier Van Halen songs, mainly in its rolling synth line (played on an Oberheim OB-Xa), although the song contains the standard Eddie Van Halen guitar solo, which Edward claims as his favorite solo he ever wrote.

The video for "Jump" was directed by David Lee Roth.

"Jump" may be Van Halen's most popular and instantly recognizable composition, perhaps because its sound embodies the key aspects of both of the two genres of popular music most associated with the 1980's in America: synth-driven pop and "arena"-style metal.

Its synthesized brass introduction is one of popular music's most recognizable musical introductions. "Jump" changed the future and style of Van Halen from being a predominantly Hard Rock band to one of more radio-oriented popular music.
