20% of 25 people means that - as of the moment I'm writing this - five people have voted "Yes" for Chumbawumba. I know that sounds weird at first, but: Wikipedia says that there have been nine members of Chumbawumba over the years, so the truth is that nearly half the band needs to hurry up and get Internet access.
These guys don't have a chance.

Small correction: It's Chumbawamba. Only one 'u' in the name.

Don't be biased. They have lots of pure hardcore album. Just because they had one hit, does not make them a bad band!

Maybe. That one hit was awesome. I'll do some research.

They get points from me for having such an unconventional name that goes together well with their best known, unusually-named song. I remember the first time I heard them on the radio, "That was Tubthumping by Chumbawamba"

It was only later that I found out what was meant by "tubthumping"

Has anyone ever heard the atrocious song How to Get your Band on Television? It's one of the most arrogant, self-aggrandizing songs ever written. These insignificant pissants must have thought they were being "cool" and "rebellious" by lambasting Freddie Mercury, Paul McCartney*, Mick Jagger, and David Bowie, all of whom contributed far more to the field of music and the world than this nonentity of a band. It's funny how in the lyrics Freddie Mercury is said to have been born white, despite the fact that he was actually born in Zanzibar and had Indian heritage. But hey, why let the facts get in the way of crafting a snide, schoolyard taunt?

LOL, don't worry Zach, Chumbawamba's odds of getting into the Hall of Fame are probably lower than subzero.

funny how these guys blasted live aid for being exploitative and condemning it, I bet live aid did a lot more good than these twats ever will.

I still haven't really checked out their music, but I give them props for the John Prescott incident.
Posted by Sam on Thursday, 07.12.12 @ 18:51pm
voting yes for them just because of joker's comment
