Wonderful One-Hit Wonders: "Tubthumping" by Chumbawamba (1997)

Pop Radio played this single straight into the ground when it was first released (mainly because at the time pop radio music was already becoming a desert, creativity-wise), but the constant repetition wasn't able to kill the song's appeal completely. A now defunct anarchist music collective stitched together a pub chant, a New-Agey/Folk vocal line, and an alternative-pop rap to create something that's pretty damn fun and made for a perfect late '90s summer pop song.
