"Bang Bang Bang" is a song from Record Collection, the third studio album by Mark Ronson, released under the moniker Mark Ronson & The Business Intl. The song features rapper Q-Tip and singer Amanda Warner of MNDR. It was released as the album's lead single on 9 July 2010 in the United Kingdom. The song is based on the popular French-Canadian children's song "Alouette", which means "skylark". The chorus directly references lyrics from "Alouette" including the line "Je te plumerai la tête", which means "I shall pluck your head". The beginning of the music video also depicts a young girl singing the opening lines to "Alouette". "Bang Bang Bang" debuted at number six on the UK Singles Chart with 50,170 copies sold in its first week.
Anthony Hill from Clickmusic describes "Bang Bang Bang" as having "the impromptu charm and inexorable appeal of a 1980s New York block party." Hill further comments, "'Un, deux, trois,' slams the intro, revealing the exact number of seconds it takes Mark Ronson's latest effort to gatecrash its way into the brain. Once lodged among the neurons, it deftly impels every muscle and limb to move spasmodically to its infectious beat."
Bookended by two seemingly unrelated pieces of footage – a fictitious retro commercial for sandwich spread and a dramatic tennis match – "Bang Bang Bang" stars Ronson as the guest on an offbeat, '70s-style Japanese talk show. When he's asked to chat about his music, Ronson transforms into a smooth Bryan Ferry figure and hops behind a bank of synthesisers to perform his latest composition. The clip is equal parts American Bandstand and Tron – and the most effective time-capsule music video since Snoop Dogg resurrected the Rick James era with "Sexual Eruption."
In February 2011, music video blog Yes, We've Got a Video! ranked the song's music video at number nine on their list of the Top 30 Videos of 2010, adding that "there's plenty to be enjoyed in basically every second of this."
