"Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll" is a song by the American funk music group Vaughan Mason & Crew that capitalized on the roller disco fad of the late 1970s and early 1980s. The title track of the album of the same name, it reached #5 on the US Billboard Hot Soul Singles chart in 1980.

It has since been used as the inspiration for the title of the film Roll Bounce, and appears on its soundtrack. It also appears on the soundtrack to the film South Central.

The song has been sampled in more than 100 songs,[1] among them Daft Punk's "Da Funk," 112's "Only You," and A Tribe Called Quest's "I Left My Wallet in El Segundo," as well as songs by Kid Rock, De La Soul, and Heavy D and the Boyz. The song was covered by rapper Baby DC on the album School Dayz.
