SONG FOR TODAY: Fatboy Slim - Build It Up - Tear It Down

'You've Come a Long Way, Baby' is the second studio album by English big beat musician Fatboy Slim, released on 19 October 1998 through the label Skint Records.

The album's title is taken from a marketing slogan for the cigarette brand Virginia Slims, similar to how Fatboy Slim's debut album Better Living Through Chemistry borrowed chemical company DuPont's "Better Living Through Chemistry" tagline for its title. You've Come a Long Way, Baby faced issues regarding the use of profanity, most notably on the track "Fucking in Heaven" where the word fucking is spoken 108 times by DJ Freddy Fresh. The word "shit" is used in "Gangster Tripping" 57 times, which makes a total of 165 profanities. Because of this, the album was given a Parental Advisory sticker.

The album peaked at number one on the UK Albums Chart, number one in New Zealand, number two in Australia, and number thirty-four on the U.S. Billboard 200. Four singles were released from the album: "The Rockafeller Skank", "Gangster Trippin", "Praise You", and "Right Here, Right Now", each of which reached the top 10 in the UK Singles Chart. "Build It Up – Tear It Down" was also released as a promo, but not as a commercial single.
