Chumbawamba are a British band who have, over a career nearly spanning three decades, played anarcho-punk, pop-influenced dance music, a cappella, choral music, world music, and acoustic folk music.

The band are best known for their song "Tubthumping" (also known as "I Get Knocked Down"), and also for "Amnesia", "Enough Is Enough" (with MC Fusion), "Timebomb", "Top of the World (Ole, Ole, Ole)", and most recently, "Add Me".

They have taken influence from anarchist politics and exhibit an irreverent attitude toward authority, touching on issues such as domestic violence, religion, racism, fascism, war, homophobia, information technology, pop culture, pornography, resistance, working class rights, and consumerism.
