Spybreak!” is a 1997 single by the big beat group Propellerheads from their first album, Decksandrumsandrockandroll. There are two versions of this song, called "Spybreak! (Long One)" and "Spybreak! (Short One)." The former is approximately three minutes longer than the latter.

It is probably the group's best known track due to its inclusion in the popular film, which gave Propellerheads a boost into international recognition.

The song also appears as a repeating backdrop music on the Marvel Comic Heroes at Universal's Islands of Adventure theme park in Orlando, Florida. It was also used for the games in the 71st season of the UAAP. This song was also in the 1997 movie Playing God and in the TV series Malcolm in the Middle and Third Watch.
