"Born Slippy .NUXX" is a 1996 single by the band Underworld.
It was preceded in January 1995 by the single "Born Slippy", which featured the ".NUXX" mix as a B-side. The band has stated that the pounding, relentless rhythm and shouted lyrics of the track were originally meant "as a joke", and the single received little attention. They have also said in a Guardian interview that the song is intended to sound like an alcoholic's internal dialogue and that Karl Hyde was an alcoholic at the time. Underworld have claimed that the ".NUXX" name was inspired by a computer fault that added that suffix to the name of their working files.
The ".NUXX" mix was released as its own proper single in the wake of the 1996 Danny Boyle film Trainspotting, where it could be heard in the final scene.
