The cult UK rock band Chumbawamba have expressed their outrage over the use of their only hit tune Tubthumping by the right-leaning political party Ukip at its annual conference. Nigel Farrage, the leader of the controversial party, walked onstage to the big anthem, unaware of the band's politics or their history. In 1997, frontman Danbert Nobacon upheld the Brit Award's tradition for controversy by hurling a jug of water over the then deputy prime minister John Prescott. Speaking to the Guardian, Dunstance Bruce said: "This song being used by Ukip is so wrong. I am absolutely appalled that this grubby little organisation are stealing our song to use for their own ends. "It's beyond the pale and if they use it again we will consider legal action." The band added that they wanted to make clear they didn't agree with the politics of Ukip. "In fact we would go further and say that Nigel Farrage is an a**e, his party is mainly made up of bigots and its policies are racist," added Alice Nutter, a former singer for the band. Ukip said they will not use the song again. Start Saving Money On Musical Instruments Now  ADNFCR-2133-ID-800725541-ADNFCR
