My band. I'll let you know when we've actually recorded something cause, "Dirty, grungy, heavy funk" would describe our style perfectly.

Primus' first 2-3 albums were basically thrashy-funk with vocals from the residents.

mudvayne's L.D. 50 has a significant amount of funkier slap-riffs, with essentially jazz-fusion drums, but that's more metal with funk-jazz influence.

if it's straight funk you want, you can't beat marcus miller's solo stuff in my book.

if you're looking for more old-school type funk that's heavy and dirty check out this:

some people may recognize this as it was sampled by Daft Punk; either way, its got an awesome guitar line and its overall a good song

True heavy funk? Like 70s (aka real) funk?


Funkadelic is all you need. And Parliament, but those two go hand in hand.

For y'all have knocked her up.
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own shit.
