Enough Is Enough (ft Credit To The Nation) - #1 in the 1993 Festive Fifty

Chumbawamba is a British musical group who have, over a career spanning nearly three decades, played punk rock, pop-influenced music, world music, and folk music.

The band reached #1 on the 1993 Festive Fifty with 'Enough Is Enough' (featuring Credit To The Nation). Their three entries in 1993 came eight years after their only previous appearance in the Peel show's annual listeners' chart, a record gap at the time.

Chumbawamba's first session featured covers of 70s hits and aroused some controversy among listeners. When it was repeated, Peel commented:

"People wrote in and said that they perceived the session and the tunes that Chumawumba chose to do as being some kind of comment on the nature of these programmes. And that may be so frankly, but I thought it was quite an amusing idea and continue to think it was quite an amusing idea, so I shall press along with that and not get sulky or anything. It doesn’t matter to me whether it was or not. I enjoyed it."

Peel didn't enjoy their music after the band signed to EMI in 1997 and produced hits like "Tubthumping" and "Amnesia". In one episode of Sounds Of The Suburbs: Lanarkshire, broadcast on Channel 4 in 1999, where he was visiting a youth club, he noticed a Chumbawamba sign designed by young people and mentioned the band used to be good.
