“Jump Around,” House of Pain (1992)It’s been nearly three decades, yet “Jump Around” still has its place in pop culture. And, especially during football games at the University of Wisconsin. This kind of Celtic-tinged, hip-hop party anthem reached as high as No. 3 on the Hot 100, and proved to be the biggest single in the history of a group that probably deserved more sustained success than it achieved. In the United States, House of Pain never had another single sit better than 65 on the charts.

But at what point are her preaching methods, and consequential fame, no longer so-wrong-it’s-right, and just wrong? “She said ’You need to cover up young lady, you’re an accessory to the rape crime on campus’, and then at that point, my jaw just dropped. I think that’s when I was like, ’people like this actually exist, because you see on social media people victim blaming for assault but I didn’t know that people actually said those kinds of comments,” said Jenna Gosz, who stumbled across Cindy preaching at University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2019 and, although it’s off little importance, says her clothing was far from revealing anyway.

The subsequent debate led to a three-year moratorium on the funding of experiments designed to enhance the transmissibility or disease-causing capabilities of influenza viruses or coronaviruses.
