Steam (band)

Steam was a pop music group best known for their 1969 #1 hit song "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye".

A one-hit wonder -- the band had already broken up by the time the song, intended to be a throwaway B-side, hit -- the group and song were largely forgotton until the 1977 Major League Baseball season, when Chicago White Sox organist Nancy Faust began playing the tune when opposing pitchers were relieved, or when the Sox had clearly won the game. Fans began singing along, playing the song during sporting events gradually became a tradition and today the Steam hit is commonly heard at arenas and stadiums throughout the US.

The song was revived for the 2000 movie Remember the Titans.

The song was revived for the 2000 movie Remember the Titans. After the Timelords, the duo became The KLF. Fans began singing along, playing the song during sporting events gradually became a tradition and today the Steam hit is commonly heard at arenas and stadiums throughout the US. The Manual was re-released in 2002 with a new introduction. A one-hit wonder -- the band had already broken up by the time the song, intended to be a throwaway B-side, hit -- the group and song were largely forgotton until the 1977 Major League Baseball season, when Chicago White Sox organist Nancy Faust began playing the tune when opposing pitchers were relieved, or when the Sox had clearly won the game. The Timelords released one other product, a 1989 book called The Manual or How to Have a Number One the Easy Way, a tongue-in-cheek guide to scamming the music industry written by Drummond, a former music industry manager and A&R man. Steam was a pop music group best known for their 1969 #1 hit song "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye". A more prosaic explanation for the name comes from the Time Lords, an alien race from the planet Gallifrey in Doctor Who.

A photograph of the vehicle appeared on the sleeve of the Doctorin the Tardis single (the car was also credited for the song itself) and was prominently featured in a number of the group's music videos. Cauty and Drummond claimed the car then spoke to them, giving its name as Ford Timelord and advising the duo to adopt the name for themselves. According to group members Jimmy Cauty and Bill Drummond, the Timelords came about after their purchase of an American Ford Galaxie police car (which had allegedly been used in the film Superman IV filmed in the UK). The song is a mix of Gary Glitter's Rock and Roll, The Sweet's Blockbuster and the Doctor Who theme with sparse vocals inspired by Doctor Who and Harry Enfield's Loadsamoney character.Doctorin' the Tardis reached number one in the UK Singles Chart on 12 June, and also charted highly in Australia and New Zealand.

The Timelords was the name used by UK sampling outfit The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu for their 1988 novelty pop single Doctorin the Tardis, a No.1 hit in the UK.
