Beat Box is the debut single released by the British group Art Of Noise in 1983. The track originally appeared on the 12" EP Into Battle With The Art Of Noise in two versions, referred to as "Diversion One" and "Diversion Two", along with the song "Moments In Love". The song reached the lower regions of the UK singles chart, where it peaked at #92. It was more popular with dance music audiences, and in February of 1984 the song reached #1 on the American dance chart, where it remained for two weeks.

The song can be heard in the PSP video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. It also formed the basis for the theme for the British game show, The Krypton Factor. A sample can be found in the song "Love is Eveywhere" by WestBam (a popular German DJ) & the Love Committee, which was an anthem for the Berlin Love Parade in 2007. Rapper Tech N9ne also samples the song for the single, "Bout Ta' Bubble" from his 2006 album, Everready (The Religion).
