Jumpin’ Jack Flash è un celebre singolo dei Rolling Stones uscito nel 1968, che segnava il ritorno del gruppo allo stile blues che ne aveva caratterizzato le composizioni dei primi fortunatissimi anni. Non venne mai pubblicato su album, sebbene composto durante le sessioni di Beggars Banquet; è stato però riproposto in una miriade delle infinite compilation dedicate allo storico gruppo rock britannico, compresi numerosi estratti in DVD. E’ citato in tutte le autorevoli classifiche stilate sui brani più rilevanti della storia del rock, tra cui quella del magazine Rolling Stone, quella del canale musicale VH1 e quella della rivista Q, quest’ultima che lo piazza al secondo posto tra le migliori tracks di chitarra di sempre.
Come di consueto, il brano è frutto della creatività della coppia Jagger-Richards.
