Tubthumping

Exactly 15 years ago, British band Chumbawamba hit a peak position of number 6 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart with “Tubthumping.”  The song would spend two weeks at that spot before beginning its descent.  It would also be the band’s only song to hit the Hot 100, making them a true one-hit wonder in terms of pop music in the United States, though they would return to the top 40 two more times in the U.K., and they built a significant following over three decades (1982-2012) of making music while articulating leftist political stances.

Though you may only know them from their one pop hit, the full career of Chumbawamba is worth a fuller look.  One place to start is their official website.
