  "Galvanize" is a song by British electronic music duo The Chemical Brothers and the first single released from their 2005 album "Push the Button". It peaked at No. 3 on the UK Singles chart.

It was the highest charting single in their native United Kingdom by The Chemical Brothers since "Hey Boy Hey Girl", which had also reached No. 3 in 1999. In Spain, it reached No. 1 and it held the top spot for two weeks.



The track features a distinct Moroccan Chaabi string sample from Najat Aatabou's song "Hadi Kedba Bayna (Obvious lie)". The main hook of the song is in 6/4 time signature, while the rest is in 4/4. The track also features rapping by Q-Tip (member of A Tribe Called Quest). In part of the song, a sample from the group’s early single "Leave Home" plays.


Critical reception

Pitchfork Media's Scott Plagenhoef stated the song along with "The Boxer" "harks back to the duo's early B-Boy/techno days" but missed "the ferocity and sub-bass rattlings of their earlier cousins, and here play second fiddle to unremarkable verses and nasally vocals."

It won the Grammy Award for Best Dance Single in February 2006.
