Album: Push The ButtonReleased: 2005Charted:
This song features a string sample from Moroccan pop singer Najat Aatabou's song "Just Tell Me The Truth" and vocals by former A Tribe Called Quest member, Q-Tip.
This won the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording. In addition, the Push The Button album won the 2006 Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album.
In the US, this was featured in popular commercials for Budweiser beer.
Tom Rowlands of The Chemical Brothers recalled to Q magazine December 2010: "Q-tip would only sing into a golden microphone. Not silver, not bronze. It practically came with its own security guard. But I'm sure it gave his Galvanize vocal that extra bit of punch."
The song returned to the UK singles chart after it was used to start the entrance of the athletes at the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Summer Olympics.
