There’s a Riot Goin’ On is the fifth studio album by Sly & The Family Stone, released on November 1, 1971, by Epic Records. The album was a departure from the optimistic psychedelic soul of previous records and shifted to a more political and militant vibe, perfectly encapsulating the turbulent political climate in the United States at the turn of the 1970s.  

The album was a commercial success hitting #1 on the album charts while the single “Family Affair” topped the singles charts. There’s a Riot Goin’ On is still to this day highly regarded and continues to rank in many publications’ best-album lists, including the Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.”
