Machine Gun is the debut studio album by The Commodores, released on July 22, 1974, on Motown Records. Unlike subsequent Commodores albums, Machine Gun has only funk music and is devoid of slow-paced ballads. The titular lead song has Milan Williams on clavinet, which led the Motown executive Berry Gordy to name the song "Machine Gun" as the clavinet work reminded him of gunfire. This track peaked at number 7 on the R&B charts, while reaching number 22 on the overall pop charts.

The Southerners became increasingly pop-minded in the late '70s, but when their debut album, Machine Gun, came out in 1974, their music was unapologetically gritty. This was, without question, a very promising debut - Lionel Richie and his allies really hit the ground running on sweaty funk items like "Young Girls Are My Weakness," "The Bump," "Gonna Blow Your Mind," and the single "I Feel Sanctified. These songs aren't funk-pop or sophisticated funk - they're hardcore funk.

Album: Machine Gun (1974). Charted: 20 22. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. It was big in Europe, in Asia, in the United States, Africa and South America. But it hadn't taken our name with it. Everybody knew 'Machine Gun' but they didn't know the Commodores. That was because it was an instrumental. Anyway, since it had not carried the Commodores, we made up our minds that the next release would have lyrics to it. So, we did 'I Feel Sanctified' next. We wanted something with a strong groove. For many years national television stations in Nigeria would play this after the country's national anthem before closing down.
