"The Globe" is a 1991 song by British electronic group Big Audio Dynamite II. It was released as a single in the United States and is taken from their album The Globe. It samples the 1981 song "Should I Stay or Should I Go", which was written by Big Audio Dynamite II singer Mick Jones during his tenure with The Clash, and Lionel Richie's 1983 single, "All Night Long (All Night)".
A music video for the single edit of the song was released in 1991 through Sony BMG Music Entertainment. It was directed by Nic Hofmeyr and Ralph Ziman. The video features the band playing at the Crossroads of the World tower in Los Angeles, inter-spliced with stock footage of the city, its nightlife and scenery, and a recording of the band performing on stage.
