From Supergrass and 56 other releases

“Pumping on Your Stereo” is a song by Supergrass, released as their first single from their self-titled third album, Supergrass (1999). The single reached #11 in the UK Singles Chart. In October 2011, NME placed it at number 124 on its list “150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years”.
Mick Quinn said in regards to the recording of the song; “There were certain instances where Danny didn’t hit the snare loud enough so we all had to clap over the snare. In the end it sounds like Bowie.”

Danny Goffey: “It came about when we were just in our rehearsal studio and we all started singing it over three chords. It’s quite easy to play. The easier the song is to play, the better we play it. It just happened really quickly. It was one of those songs that just comes together in 10 minutes.”
Though the title of the song is “Pumping on Your Stereo,” the band thought it funny to actually sing the word “humping” in place of “pumping,” and this is how it is thus heard on the recording. In live performances, the band has sung “pumping” instead.
Supergrass can be heard applauding themselves and whooping at the end of the recording, at the very end of this drummer Danny Goffey says, “Can we go home now?”
The song features in the movie Road Trip. It was also featured in Formula One’s video for the 2009 Italian Grand Prix. In 2011, the song featured on a TV advert for the Toyota Yaris.
