Favorite ThisChumbawamba - Tubthumping (Manic Focus Remix)

Published: June 11, 2012

The mysterious return of jorts and boy bands has signaled a resurgence in 90's nostalgia. It was a simpler time; kids were wracking their brains figuring out how to make Pogs entertaining and Chumbawamba's "Tubthumping" was everywhere. Bass music producer Manic Focus is certainly feeling wistful about the British novelty hit. With a little help from Jay-Z and House of Pain, he gives the one-hit-wonder new life.

A midtempo marvel, this cut would be perfect for a summer barbecue by the pool when people aren't trying to get all dark and twisted.
