"Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey)" is the second single released by De La Soul from their second album De La Soul Is Dead, in 1991. The song is a party jam about overzealous fans who pursue the group with demo tapes in their efforts to obtain an endorsement from the group. It was inspired by one overzealous fan in particular, Breakestra frontman Miles Tackett who was soliciting demo tapes to the group (note "demo tapes by the miles" in the song's subtitle). It has been credited that it samples Fat Larry's Band's "Act Like You Know", which actually sampled The Whatnauts track "Help Is on the Way", which came out a year earlier in 1981 but it was actually the original Whatnauts track that was sampled. The song also includes a sample from "Pass the Peas" by The J.B.'s, written by J. Brown, C. Bobbit & J. Skarks. The chorus of "Ring Ring Ring" uses lyrics and melody from the Curiosity Killed the Cat song "Name and Number". The bass in the introduction comes from Lou Johnson's "Beat" and the drum comes from The Honey Drippers' "Impeach the President".
