Chumbawamba are an English band who began their career playing Anarcho-punk, but over a 25-year career have gone on to play music ranging from pop-influenced dance music, a cappella/choral music and world music to acoustic folk music. The band are best known for their song "Tubthumping" as well as "Top Of The World (Ole, Ole, Ole)", "On eBay", "Jacob's Ladder" and, most recently, "Add Me". They are originally influenced by anarchist politics and an irreverent attitude to authority, but this has grown to concerns about domestic violence, religion, racism, anti-fascism, anti-war and consumerism.
