About Kernkraft 400

"Kernkraft 400" (English: Nuclear Energy 400) is a song performed by German techno artist Zombie Nation and the first single from their album Leichenschmaus. Released in 1999, it reached number 22 in Germany in February 2000. It also reached number 10 in Flemish Belgium and number five in the Netherlands. In September, the song debuted and peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart, remaining there for two weeks behind Mariah Carey and Westlife's version of "Against All Odds", and has since received a Gold certification from the British Phonographic Industry for sales of at least 400,000 copies. It also peaked at number two in Ireland. The song is commonly used as a sports chant at sport stadiums (such as in American football, association football, basketball, and hockey) all over the world and was ranked number eight by Sports Illustrated in their list of "Top 10 Stadium Anthems". The first Zombie Nation record contained the song "Kernkraft 400", which is a remix of the soundtrack of the 1984 Commodore 64 game Lazy Jones by David Whittaker called "Star Dust" which was made with the SID chip. "Star Dust" in turn has been said to borrow from "It Happened Then" by Electronic Ensemble. Though permission for the sampling was not initially granted, Florian Senfter ("Splank!") paid an undisclosed sum to David Whittaker for the use of the melody. The song is sometimes mislabeled as "Zombie Nation", as the artist's name can be heard in the otherwise instrumental track.
