6 Years of Ars / Funk I like

Joined the same exact day as user Mort. List is funk that I like. I guess rec me other funk you think I may like.
1Sly and The Family Stone
There's A Riot Goin' On

"Family Affair" is the greatest US #1 single of all time. Prove me wrong.
Mothership Connection

Make my funk the P. Funk.
Maggot Brain

George Clinton is wonderful.
4Erykah Badu
New Amerykah Pt. 1 (4th World War)

The opener on this album is such P. Funk worship.
Black Messiah

Been listening to Brown Sugar a lot lately, but I guess this is even better, so I'm putting this one here.
6Curtis Mayfield

I don't know what to say here except that Curtis Mayfield rules.
7Stevie Wonder

I relistened to all of Songs in the Key of Life earlier today and damn does it hold up. Innervisions and Fulfillingness are better though.
Sailing the Seas of Cheese

Not really as similar to other artists here, but it IS funk so. Funk... metal.
9The Mothers of Invention
Over-Nite Sensation

Zappa influenced Parliament/Funkadelic and then Parliament/Funkadelic influenced Zappa. Neat when artists inspire each other. Anyway... some of the songs on here are Zappa's take on funk.
Midnite Vultures

Beck's take on funk.
11Rage Against The Machine
Evil Empire

Okay, I guess Primus isn't the only "heavy" funky band I like.
12Red Hot Chili Peppers
Blood Sugar Sex Magik

Hey, they're George Clinton approved, so get over it. (Band gets a lot of hate on Sputnik, yet you all like Tool, ugh.) Just gonna name drop Mr. Bungle/Faith No More here since I'm not putting them on the list as their own item.
13Fela Kuti

The only afrobeat artist I listen to, but I think that's true for most people who like Fela Kuti.
14Stanley Clarke
School Days

Jazz-funk is cool and so is this release, but I think I like regular funk and funk-rock more honestly.
15Janelle Monae
The ArchAndroid

This album is kinda all over the place, but there are enough funky songs on here for me to include it.
16Mr. Bungle
Mr. Bungle

By the request of SlothcoreSam: Their only album that's mostly funk.

(I guess I lied when I said Bungle wouldn't make the list.)

I hardly listen to these guys anymore actually. Weird, right?
