After 30 years together, Chumbawamba will “get up again” no more. The British band, best known for their 1997 hit “Tubthumping,” has called it quits.

The punk band released the following statement:

“We felt we’d got to a point where what we did as a band – and specifically the writing, recording, touring cycle – wasn’t doing justice to what Chumbawamba set out to do in the first place.”

Started in 1982, the punk band tackled controversial subjects such as religion, animal cruelty, war, pornography and government over the span of 17 albums.
