"Incredible" is a song by jungle producer M-Beat featuring General Levy on vocals. It was first released as a single in 1994 and reached No. 39 on the UK Singles Chart. A re-release a few months later featuring new mixes was much more successful, peaking at No. 8, and remaining on the chart for 12 weeks.[1] "Incredible" was the first jungle track to reach the top 10 in the UK.[2] It was released on Renk Records.[3]

General Levy's vocals on "Incredible" were adapted from a song he had previously written, titled "The Wickedest General".[2] In response to General Levy's remark, following the runaway success of "Incredible", that he was "runnin' jungle", an ad hoc "Committee" of DJs and others influential in the jungle community launched a campaign against the song.[4]
