The Ting Tings – Thats Not My Name

“That’s Not My Name” is the third single by British duo The Ting Tings from their debut studio album We Started Nothing. Vocalist Katie White states that the song was written “with me ranting about my frustrations with the record industry.” The song was originally released as a double A-side with “Great DJ” by independent record label Switchflicker Records on 28 May 2007. After heavy promotion from BBC Radio 1 and the NME, the single was re-released individually on 12 May 2008 on Columbia Records.
“That’s Not My Name” topped the UK Singles Chart, seeing off competition from well-established acts like Rihanna, Madonna, and will.i.am. The song was a sleeper hit in North America, peaking within the top 40 of the charts in the United States. The single has sold over a million digital copies.
