The song is a country/ska variation of the leitmotif used in "Bob-omb Battlefield" and "Cool, Cool Mountain", both being composed by Nintendo veteran composer Koji Kondo, used for several levels in Super Mario 64, including "The Princess's Secret Slide", "Tick Tock Clock", and "Rainbow Ride".
Being one of the most popular song from the game, it has been rearranged/reused in several other titles, including Super Smash Bros. Melee ("Rainbow Ride"), Super Mario Galaxy 2, Super Mario 3D World, Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and Super Mario Maker 2.
See Slider and Rips featuring Slider."Slider" became popular on the GiIvaSunner channel following the release of Slider - Super Mario 64, a simple 7 GRAND DAD joke that was nonetheless particularly fitting. This rip was the most viewed video on the original GiIvaSunner channel.
The rip was quickly reuploaded to SiIvaGunner following GiIvaSunner's termination. The second Slider rip was simply a Reboot counterpart to the famous original rip using the reboot memes, uploaded very early into the reboot. After the reboot ended, "Slider" rips became more common.
In a similar vein to the Reboot rip, "Slider" rips are usually one of the first rips to feature a source once it becomes a meme. Not counting "Circus", it is the track with the most versions on the channel (more than 50 if rips from Super Mario 64 DS and other Mario games are also counted).
Additionally, many "Slider" rips were uploaded during the Super Mario Bros. 31st Anniversary.
"Slider" is also sometimes used as a minor meme in other rips due to its sheer popularity on the channel.
- On the real GilvaSunner channel, this song is incorrectly titled as "Slide". Due to the popularity and legacy of the "Slider" rips, it is one of the few rare cases where SiIvaGunner has intentionally not matched GilvaSunner.
