RockBoar.com Picture   The word "funk" itself began to enter the R&B vocabulary with Dyke & the Blazers' R&B dance hit "Funky Broadway". Several  theories and explanations of the orgins of the actual word "funk" have been offered, the most likely consensus being that, like rock & roll and jazz, it was a euphemism for sexual activity, though "funk" often stood for smelly, gritty, or earthly stuff within the African-American community. By the end of the 1960s, it had come to stand for the greasiest and earthiest variant of soul music.[1]

   Dyke & Blazers and Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band (most famous for "Express Yourself") were among the style's earliest practitioners. After an apprenticeship with Eric Burdon, War stormed the charts in the early and mid-'70s with a series of hits that incorporated Latin rhythms, loose, jazz grooves, and vague social pontifications. The Meters took the sound of New Orleans R&B, already a bedrock of much post-1950 R7B, soul, and rock, into the funk era, largely on instrumentals (at least at first). Isaac Hayes took endless bubbling funk monologues onto both album and single charts, as his "Shaft" took the wah-wah guitar signatures often found in funk to their limot.[1]
