"Being Boiled" is a song written by Sheffield musicians Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh, with lyrics by Philip Oakey, and recorded by them as The Human League. It is notable as one of the first pieces of electronic pop music produced in the UK. It was first released as a single in 1978 on the Fast Product label, and although failing to chart, was influential amongst other new wave and post-punk artists. After the The Human League's commercial success, the single was re-released in 1982 (this time through EMI), reaching Number 6 in the Charts. .
