"The Bad Touch" is the first single by The Bloodhound Gang off their 1999 album Hooray for Boobies. It was released in 1999 internationally and, a year later, in the U.S. and UK. The song was also remixed by God Lives Underwater & Eiffel 65. The music is based on the Pet Shop Boys song "In the Night" (the B-side of the "Opportunities (Let's Make Lots of Money)" single from the album Please), and was supposedly written in 1986 by then 14-year-old Jimmy Pop, despite the presence of a reference to a television series which premiered in 1993.

The song's catchy chorus features the couplet, "You and me baby ain't nothing but mammals/ so let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel." The Discovery Channel is a cable TV channel which frequently shows nature documentaries, sometimes including footage of animals mating. The picture sleeve for the single shows two zebras copulating.
