"Box Frenzy" is the debut album from UK based Grebo band Pop Will Eat Itself. It was released in 1987 by Chapter 22 Records in the UK and Rough Trade Records in the US, and re-released in 2003 with bonus tracks by Castle Records.

The track "There Is No Love Between Us Anymore" samples the songs "When I Fall In Love" by Nat King Cole, and "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" by The Righteous Brothers. Their better-known track "Hit the Hi-Tech Groove" not only samples the techno-disco song "Respectable" by Mel & Kim, as well as the Whistle song "Just Buggin'," but defiantly boasts that the band steals (though they actually sample) as many varieties of sounds that they can get to make their music, ranging from other people's songs to television soundbites.[2][not in citation given]
