"One Nation Under A Groove" was a 1978 song by Funkadelic, the title track from their album "One Nation Under A Groove". The lyrics refer to dancing as a way to freedom, though the 'dancing' could be easily seen as a metaphor of breaking boundaries, keeping with the album's theme. Compared to Funkadelic's earlier output, which was characterized by sound typical for rock music, this song had a sound more typical for dance music. "One Nation Under A Groove" was released as a single and reached thirty-one on the Billboard Club Play Singles chart. It has endured as a dance funk classic and is probably Funkadelic's most widely-known song. "One Nation Under A Groove" peaked at number twenty-eight on the Hot 100 and reached number one on the Billboard Soul chart for six weeks, the longest of any number one single released in 1978. The song is included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's list of 500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll. It is also ranked #474 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. "One Nation Under A Groove" was the tenth studio album by American funk and rock band Funkadelic, released in September 1978 on Warner Brothers Records. Recording sessions took place at United Sound Studio in Detroit, Michigan, with one song recorded live on April 15, 1978 at the Monroe Civic Center in Monroe, Louisiana. The album was the first album by the George Clinton-led ensemble to include keyboardist and frequent songwriter Walter 'Junie' Morrison. "One Nation Under A Groove" also marked the pinnacle of Michael Hampton's development as a guitarist. "One Nation Under A Groove" was Funkadelic's most commercially successful album, and one of its most critically lauded. It is also regarded by many as the greatest funk album of all time and ranks at or near the top of many 'best album' lists in disparate genres. The album was featured on Vibe magazine's 100 Essential Albums of the 20th Century list. In 2003, the album was ranked number 177 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
