"Word Up!" is a funk/hip hop song written and originally recorded by Cameo in 1986.
Due to its heavy play on American dance and R&B radio, as well as music video play on MTV (which has LeVar Burton as a police detective trying to arrest the band), the single became the band's most well-known hit.
From the album of the same name, "Word Up!" was Cameo's first US Top 40 hit, peaking at number six on the Billboard Hot 100 and also spent three weeks at number one on the US Hot Black Singles chart.
"Word Up!" also spent one week at number one on the US Hot Dance Singles chart, and reached number three in the UK.
The song was written by Larry Blackmon & Thomas Michael Jenkins.
Like the band's previous single, Single Life, Word Up! features a sample of the opening notes of Ennio Morricone's theme to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
In the 1990s, "Word Up!" was first covered by Scottish rock band Gun, whose version carried a harder, more rock-oriented sound, including a guitar solo. Taken from their album Swagger, it was released on July 1, 1994 and reached #8 in the UK singles chart.
Gun's version of the song was featured on the soundtrack to 1996 film Barb Wire, and was also used in the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation season one episode "Who Are You?". The Gun version was also featured on the 2011 series of British television show Dancing on Ice, when Vanilla Ice used it as background music for his dance in the first episode.
"Word Up!" was later covered by Melanie B (known as Melanie G at that time) It was released on June 28, 1999. It peaked at #14 at UK Singles Chart. The single was also on the Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me soundtrack. "Word Up!" sold about 77,996 copies in the UK, which was the lowest selling solo Spice Girls-related single of the 1990s.
"Word Up!" by American nu metal band Korn is a cover of the song by R&B group, Cameo. Its musical arrangements are similar to that of the cover version by Gun, except it is played in a lower sounding 7 string guitar tuning instead of the standard E. "Word Up!" was the first track featured on Korn's 2004 retrospective album, Greatest Hits, Volume 1, and was one of three new tracks along with Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall" that was exclusive to the album (the "Word Up!" CD single also featured a live performance of the latter).
