That's Not My Name (5:10)

Cover of We Started Nothing

From We Started Nothing and 43 other releases

“That’s Not My Name” is the second single by British duo The Ting Tings from their debut studio album We Started Nothing. Vocalist Katie White states that the song was written “with me ranting about my frustrations with the record industry.”[5] The song was originally released as a double A-side with “Great DJ” by independent record label Switchflicker Records on 28 May 2007. After heavy promotion and support from BBC Radio 1 and the NME, the single was re-released individually on 12 May 2008 on Columbia Records.

“That’s Not My Name” went to number one in the UK Singles Chart on 18 May 2008, seeing off competition from well-established acts like Rihanna, Madonna and will.i.am.[6] The following week, however, the single was replaced by Rihanna’s single “Take a Bow” at number one.[7] The song was a sleeper hit in North America for about five months before finally becoming a Top 40 hit on the charts. The single has sold over a million digital copies.

Four letter word just to get me along
It's a difficulty and I'm biting on my tongue and I,
I keep stalling, and keeping me together
People around gotta find something to say now
