"F.U.R.B. (Fuck You Right Back)" (censored on the single art and publicly as "F.U.R.B. (F U Right Back)") is a song by American pop/R&B singer Frankee from her debut studio album, The Good, the Bad, the Ugly. It was released as the lead single from the album in March 2004. The song was released as a response to Eamon's song "Fuck It (I Don't Want You Back)". The song reached number one in the United Kingdom,[1] knocking Eamon's song off the top spot there and remaining in that position for three weeks.[2] The song was also a number-one success in Australia.

BBC Radio 1 presenter Chris Moyles was heavily critical of both songs and recorded and broadcast his own spoof version—"We Want You to Leave"—claiming that both singles were the product of what amounted to nothing more than a cynical marketing ploy by Eamon and Frankee's record labels.[citation needed]

Music video[edit]

The video begins with Frankee while she phones the phone on the bed while the girls phone, Eamon arrives in his Mercedes-phone. While Frankee is in a storpy mood throwing toys and objects through the window. Frankee shows the girls for the photo album of the past, she singing in the beach of New Jersey. When she and the friends go out for a nightclub to find a new boyfriend. Frankee shreds the picture of Eamon and her into 4.
