"Jungle Fever" is a musical composition by Belgian band The Chakachas first published in 1972. It sold over a million copies in the U.S. and reached #3. In the UK# it fared less well: despite some airplay soon after release it was later banned by the BBC, who took exception to the moaning and heavy breathing heard on the record, first by a woman and later by a man as well. It peaked at #29.

The song was featured in the movie Boogie Nights, it is sampled on the song entitled "Put Her in the Buck" on the As Nasty as They Wanna Be album by 2 Live Crew, Ambassador's "Honor And Glory", Antoinette's "I Got an Attitude", Beatnuts' "Story 2000", Bigg Ocean Mobb's "Cops Hate Kids", Breeze's "Great Big Freak", Brothers Like Outlaw "Deja Vu", CEO's "Hit Me with the Beat", Public Enemy's "Cold Lampin' with Flavor" and featured on the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas soundtrack, being played on fictional radio station Master Sounds 98.3. More recently, DJ "Little" Louie Vega used the track as the basis for a remix incorporating new vocals by British jazz poet Ursula Rucker on "The Elements Of Life" (2004).
