“Jumpin’ Jack Flash” is a song by English rock band The Rolling Stones, released as a single in 1968.

In 1986, the song’s title was used for the Whoopi Goldberg film Jumpin’ Jack Flash. In addition to the Rolling Stones’ version of the song, the film features Aretha Franklin’s cover version for which Ronnie Wood and Richards played guitar. This version is characterised by influences from the increasingly popular black music scene. Both The Rolling Stones’ and Franklin’s versions are on the film’s original soundtrack recording.

The track was remixed by Steve Thompson & Michael Barbiero for the 12″ single release.
