Van Halen’s only #1 hit in North America, “Jump” is a synth-driven song with lyrics about jumping at opportunities. The inspiration for the song came from David Lee Roth watching a person threatening suicide on TV.

Also, the 82nd Airborne Division, in the United States Army, uses this tune periodically for paratrooper training and operations. Might as well jump before I kick your ass out of the Goddamn door!

Intentionally or involuntarily, you’re goin' out that door!“

" Jump " is a song by American hard 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 . [2] The song differs from earlier Van Halen songs in that it is driven by a rolling keyboard 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. [3]

Nevertheless, Roth and Templeman did work on "Jump" at Eddie's disputed new studio, with Roth providing the lyrics and the vocal melody.

Ted Templeman recalls that "'Jump' was recorded at Ed's studio. [Engineer] Donn [Landee] and Ed put the track down alone in the middle of the night. We recut it once in one take for sonic reasons. Dave wrote the lyrics that afternoon in the backseat of his Mercury convertible. We finished all vocals that afternoon and mixed it that evening". [5]
