Parliament-Funkadelic (abbreviated as P-Funk) is an American music collective of rotating musicians headed by Clinton, primarily consisting of the funk bands Parliament and Funkadelic.
According to Sweetland’s website, Clinton has recorded both as Parliament and Funkadelic, and revolutionized R&B during the ’70s, twisting soul music into funk by adding influences from several late-’60s performers such as Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa and Sly Stone.
Some of Parliament-Funkadelic’s hits include “Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)”, “P-Funk (Wants to Get Funked Up)” and “One Nation Under a Groove.”
