Tube Tops 2000 is a punk rock supergroup that covered Gary Glitter's classic rock hit "Rock and Roll, Part 2".

The band comprises Eric Erlandson (Hole), Melissa Auf der Maur (Hole, The Smashing Pumpkins), Clem Burke (Blondie), Pat Fear (White Flag), Rodney Bingenheimer (KROQ DJ) and Kathy Valentine (The Go-Go's). The band only released the one song, recorded for a glam rock tribute compilation Blockbuster: A 70's Glitter Glam Rock Experience, released in January 2001. [1]

Since 2006, it has been the replacement for the Kansas City Chiefs' touchdown celebration after the NFL asked teams to stop playing Glitter's version following his conviction on child molestation charges.[2]

The version of the song was introduced in Chiefs' games in the 2006 NFL season following a vote on the "new Chiefs touchdown song". The vote originally ended with P.O.D.'s "Boom" as the winner, but fans protested at the result and requested a new band to play "Rock and Roll, Part 2" so that the tradition of their "We're gonna beat the hell outta you!" chant could continue.
