Ohio Players are an American funk, soul music and R&B band. With their slinky, horn-powered grooves, impeccable musicianship, and eye-popping album covers, the Ohio Players were among the top funk bands of the mid-'70s. They are best known for their songs "Fire" and "Love Rollercoaster".
Gold certifications, records selling at least five hundred thousand copies, were awarded to the singles "Funky Worm", "Skin Tight", "Fire", and "Love Rollercoaster"; as well as their albums Skin Tight, Fire, and Honey. On August 17, 2013, Ohio Players were inducted into the inaugural class of the Rhythm and Blues Music Hall of Fame that took place in Cleveland, Ohio.
With their trademark bottom-heavy, horn-driven sound, the Ohio Players were also a formative influence on the hip-hop genre of G-Funk during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Their music was sampled more than 30 times by hip-hop artists from 1987 to 1992, including G-Funk pioneers Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and Snoop Dogg.
