It was also considered the The Monstars’ Anthem

The Monstars became sensations from the Space Jam movie, and this song was the introduction that was used to present them to the Toon Squad in the movie. This was by far one of the most popular songs on the soundtrack, being that it set the tone for how intense the final game was between the Looney Tunes and Monstarz.

Success in the U.K.

Unfortunately, “Hit Em High” never made it to Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, but it did seem to have some major success in the United Kingdom.
