What better way to get pumped for your day than with some bran, juice and one of the BEST dance anthems of the noughties?!

"Where's Your Head At” is taken from Rooty, Basement Jaxx's second album, which dropped over a decade ago, in 2001 (well SHIT, that makes us feel super old).

This was the band's only single to crack a non-dance music chart in the US, peaking at #39 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. It was also a Top 10 smash in the duo's native England.

The video, directed by McG, is equally awesome. Filmed over three days at a mental institute in Prague -- and with REAL monkeys -- it has to be one of the most fucked up music flicks of all time!

And, finally, this is where the song's sample originated from -- Gary Numan's “M.E,” as lifted from his 1979 album, The Pleasure Principle. Listen to said song (in which Numan does his very best Ziggy Stardust impression), below!
