"Yeah Yeah" reached No. 2 on the UK Singles Chart, also charting in a number of other countries including the Netherlands, Finland, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia. "Yeah Yeah" was used during a breakdancing competition in the 2007 Jamie Kennedy film Kickin' It Old Skool.[citation needed]

Since then Bodyrox have gone on to receive several nominations and awards including an Ivor Novello,[3] and nominations two years in a row at the IDMA's in Miami[4] and a MTV VMA nomination.[5]
