"Bop to the Top" is the seventh song from High School Musical and the movie soundtrack. It's sung by siblings Ryan and Sharpay Evans (Lucas Grabeel and Ashley Tisdale, respectively). The song was also mean to appear on the Disney+ spin-off series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. Beside this, the deleted version also appears on the series soundtrack.

Summary

The song is performed by Sharpay and Ryan for their callbacks for East High's spring musical. It is about being on top and pushing everyone that gets in the way. This relates to Sharpay and Ryan because they have to always be #1, nothing less. They also will not let anything or anyone get in their ways like Troy and Gabriella. It is also one of the bonus songs from the fourth movie in the High School Musical series' Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure.

In the Disney Channel sitcom The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, in the episode "Lip Synchin' in the Rain", Zack and Cody's school has a theater production of High School Musical. During rehearsal, London (Brenda Song) practices the song "Bop to the Top" with Antonio (Mark Indelicato), but both her singing and dancing are terrible, and her teacher Mr. Blaine advises her to take lessons. After this, Maddie Fitzpatrick (played ironically by Sharpay's actress Ashley Tisdale), comes to help London, providing her voice.

In the Disney Channel special Studio DC: Almost Live featuring the Muppets, Ashley Tisdale sings the song with Kermit the Frog, before being interrupted by a jealous Miss Piggy, who also joins the performance.

The song, besides being included on the soundtrack, was set to appear in the spin-off series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series in the episode "Homecoming". It is sung by Kourtney (Dara Renée) and Nini (Olivia Rodrigo). As the song would've been performed in a karaoke bar, Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Grabeel's original voices can also be heard. A dance routine performed by Carlos (Frankie Rodriguez) and Seb (Joe Serafini) featuring an instrumental version of the song also appears.
