Released in 1997, this is apparently their best hit so far! People commonly call it “I get knocked down” but it is called Tubhumping. Chumbawumba is an English anarchist band that pretty much rebels against any form of authority (or restraint) they can, which is evident in their name. Who the hell calls themselves Chumbawamba? And for that matter…Tubhumping?
They do claim on their official website that their name is a gibberish name because they didnt want to “expire”. They felt other bands names would grow old and date and they didnt want to be tied down. In that sense, it’s the perfect name for them!
Regardless, they seem to be doing something right because they’ve been around since 82 and are still producing albums and going on tours. I dunno about you, but I love this song!
