Credit to the Nation (CttN) are an English hip hop outfit, who had chart success in the 1990s. The band became noted in 1993 after several months of sponsorship by Chumbawamba, with whom they recorded a joint single, “Enough Is Enough”.
Hanson wrote lyrics highlighting flaws in the philosophies of gangsta hip hop, whilst attacking homophobia, sexism and racism. The follow-up single “Call It What You Want”, sampled the guitar riff used by Nirvana on “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. This helped find Credit to the Nation an audience outside of the rap market with the indie market in the UK, and also appeared on the soundtrack to the Jude Law movie Shopping Their subsequent singles “Teenage Sensation” (which made it to #23 on the UK Singles Chart in March 1994, becoming their only Top 40 hit) and “Hear No Bullshit, See No Bullshit, Say No Bullshit” were followed by the release of their debut album, Take Dis.
