"Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On)" is the opening track of the Talking Heads album Remain in Light.[1] The track has a prominent bassline and sets the funk tone of the album. A live rendition of the song was included with a long bass intro on the 2004 re-issue of the live album The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads.

The song was included as the first track to Röyksopp's mix album Back to Mine. It was named as one of the best songs released between 1980 and 1983 in the 2008 book The Pitchfork 500: Our Guide to the Greatest Songs from Punk to the Present.
