The Spike were an electronic music band begun in the late 1990s in Brisbane, Australia.

Controversy[edit]

Songs such as their notorious 2005 cover of Public Enemy's "911 is a Joke" (which featured samples of victims of Hurricane Katrina complaining about failing emergency services, alongside brief snippets of September 11 news coverage) made the band an underground hit and prevented their 2006 tour of the USA.
