Parliament/Funkadelic was a highly influential and very large funk musicians consortium led by George Clinton with a long history. They started out as the Parliaments, a soul group best known for "(I Wanna) Testify" (1967). In 1968, the Funkadelic was formed from rhythm section members of the Parliaments whose remaining members were renamed Parliament. Parliament/Funkadelic hit their stride in the late 1970s with "Tear The Roof Off The Sucker (Give Up The Funk)" (1976), "Flash Light" (1978), and "One Nation Under A Grove" (1978). Lesser-known songs from 1975 and earlier are shown below. Parliament/Funkadelic was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.
