"Tube Snake Boogie" is a song by American rock band ZZ Top from their 1981 album El Loco. It was released as a single the same year and reached #4 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart.

In the liner notes for the band's 1992 Greatest Hits album, it is explained that "'tube snake' is gnarly lingo for a surf board. Either way, it's good clean fun."

The song was produced by Bill Ham, and recorded and mixed by Terry Manning.
