"Atom Bomb" is a single by the English electronic music band Fluke,released on 28 October 1996 at Circa and in 1997 at Caroline Records. Originally created for the soundtrack to the Wipeout 2097 video game, the track reached #20 in the UK music charts and brought Fluke their first non-club mainstream single. This song is also featured in part in other productions including the motion picture Behind Enemy Lines, X-Men, the theatrical trailer for Paparazzi and the video game Enter the Matrix.[1][2] The song along with "Pil" both appeared in the film The Saint.

It was originally a single from the Wipeout 2097 soundtrack and was then included on the Risotto album a year later. The packaging and discs were designed by The Designers Republic in their typical futurist style, with the character designed and illustrated by David J. Aldred. All of Fluke's subsequent releases from this single were also designed by the firm as were the first three games of the Wipeout series

The part-animated music video was directed by Shaun Magher, who also directed and supervised the animation.[3]
