Tubthumping


Tubthumping (letteralmente: "Parlando a vanvera") è un singolo del gruppo musicale inglese Chumbawamba. Ha raggiunto la seconda posizione della classifica britannica nel 1997 e la sesta di quella statunitense e la vetta della classifica in Australia, Canada, Irlanda e Italia, oltre ad avere avuto una immensa popolarità in tutto il mondo. È stata ufficialmente pubblicata come singolo il 18 luglio 1997 dall'etichetta discografica EMI.
Tema della canzone, scritta dal gruppo e prodotto da loro insieme a Neil Ferguson è il non arrendersi mai di fronte alle sconfitte. Il brano è estratto dall'album Tubthumper e il singolo contiene alcune b-side; le canzoni Football Song e Farewell to the Crown (interpretata insieme a The Olyster band), anche queste scritte dal gruppo.
Tubthumping ha raggiunto invece la posizione dodici nella classifica della canzoni più fastidiose secondo la rivista Rolling Stone.[1]
Nel Regno Unito la parola "tubthumper" è un modo per indicare un uomo politico.
Il gruppo ha eseguito il brano anche in altre lingue, per esempio in francese quando si sono esibiti in Québec.

Alcune cover della canzone sono state realizzate in seguito al successo della stessa; "Weird Al" Yankovic ne ha fatto una cover-parodia, mentre una cover a tutti gli effetti è stata realizzata da Alvin and the Chipmunks.
Ne esiste anche una cover in dialetto piemontese realizzata dal gruppo folk-rock demenziale Farinei d'la brigna dal titolo Tubthumping (At sii 'n gadan) inclusa nell' album Sempri Farinei del 2000.

In 1997 (December 10), English band Chumbawamba performed the song "Tubthumping" on the Late Show with David Letterman. Shortly before performing, the band decided to replace one of the choruses with a stripped down chant of "Free Mumia Abu-Jamal". While it was assumed by the band that this would be edited out of the broadcast version, it was broadcast as performed.

Ich werde umgehauen
Doch ich stehe wieder auf
Ihr werdet mich nicht unterkriegen
