“Word Up!” is a funk/hip hop song written and originally recorded by Cameo.
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. Two versions of the CD single were released in the UK, each carrying different cover art and different tracks.
Guns 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.

Gun: Another great band from Glasgow. Best version by miles, Gun? kick ass!
