1977 (album)

1977 is a Britpop album by Ash, released in May of 1996 (see 1996 in music). The punk rock-influenced album proved popular in the United Kingdom and, to a lesser degree elsewhere, where Britpop was a small cult phenomenon.

The name is a reference to year of three events which shaped the band - the births of two members of the band, the year Star Wars: A New Hope was released, and the year the first punk albums were released.

The song "Kung Fu" mentions Jackie Chan in the lyrics. In reciprocation, Chan has used the song for the end credits of one of his movies.
