This track is a reworking of Punk that appeared on Laika Come Home. The title of the song is meant to be slightly amusing in that the dub sound that the Spacemonkeyz were aiming for in their re-workings is about as far away from a 'punky' sound as possible, but of course this title also preserves a reference to the original.
