"Plug Tunin'" is the debut single by the influential hip hop trio De La Soul. A remixed version appeared on their album 3 Feet High and Rising.

Lyrically, the song is idiosyncratic; "Transistors are never more shown with like / When vocal flow brings it all down in ruin / Due to a clue of a naughty noise called Plug Tunin' (Hmm-mm, hmm-mm, hmm-mm, hmm-mm, hmmmm)", however, musically it laid the foundations for the sound the group would realise more fully with their debut album 3 Feet High and Rising.

The song is sampled on the Gravediggaz' "Defective Trip.", which is also produced by Prince Paul.
