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 songs 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.
The first "Slider" rip was "Slider - Super Mario 64", uploaded to the GiIvaSunner channel on February 28, 2016; it was a simple 7 GRAND DAD joke that was nonetheless particularly fitting. This rip was the most viewed video on the original GiIvaSunner channel, and was quickly reuploaded to SiIvaGunner following the GiIvaSunner Termination.
Since then, new "Slider" rips have released at a somewhat consistent rate of 1 per month. The only bump in "Slider" rips was during September 2016, when 23 rips of it were released (11 of these being for the Super Mario Bros. 31st Anniversary event). Not counting "Circus" (since its rips are always an unrelated remix), "Slider" is the track with the most rips on the channel, with over 60 of them if all the games it's featured in are counted.
Due to its popularity with rippers, "Slider" has also been featured as a joke in a few rips, mostly medley rips.
- 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.
