Poing[edit]

Poing is a gabber track by the Rotterdam Termination Source released by Rotterdam Records in 1992. The song, composed by Maurice Steenbergen and Danny Scholte, featured a minimalist approach: during the whole length of the track a distinctive pounding beat with a "poing" sound can be heard. The track topped the charts in the Netherlands and Denmark.[citation needed] It reached number 27 in the UK chart in November 1992.[1]

The English football team West Bromwich Albion F.C.'s "Boing Boing" crowd chant, is reportedly based on this track.[2]
