On December 26, 1994, Ash frontman Tim Wheeler
came up with this song while waiting for a plane in Belfast. The song is a chop suey of references to martial arts movie tropes, with Bruce Lee, Mr. Miagi and Jackie Chan all getting mentions.
"I fell in love with the words 'kung fu,' 'Hong Kong' and 'Fu Manchu,'" Wheeler told NME
in 1995. "We wanted to write a really crap Ramones song and it was meant to be the B-side but it turned out too good. A fluke - written in five minutes and recorded in two-and-a-half."
