Transcription

Background

Released in the summer of 1993, "What's Up Doc? (Can We Rock)" became a top 40 hit, peaking at No. 39 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song had previously been simply titled "What's Up Doc?" and featured a sample of Bugs Bunny saying the title, but because the group could not get sample clearance from Warner Bros., this version was not released. Meanwhile, NBA player Shaquille O'Neal had become a media sensation in his first season. In many interviews, he talked about his love of hip hop music and stated that Fu-Schnickens were his favorite group. This prompted the group to contact O'Neal for a collaboration. O'Neal recorded a verse that was added to the song, along with the spoken line "What's up, doc?" to replace the Bugs Bunny sample. Although the group had not yet completed recording their album Nervous Breakdown, the song was quickly released as a single to capitalize on O'Neal's popularity. The single was a Top 40 hit in the summer of 1993,[3] briefly propelling the group into the mainstream.[4] The song first appeared on an album recorded by O'Neal, Shaq Diesel. Nervous Breakdown was finally released in October 1994, over a year after the single's release.

Music video

The music video was filmed underneath the Manhattan Bridge, on the Manhattan side.[5] The clip was directed by Sarah Pirozek.[6]
