"Rock the Boat" is a song by American disco group The Hues Corporation in 1974. "Rock the Boat" was written by Waldo Holmes, who also wrote the Blacula songs. "Rock the Boat" was first featured on The Hues Corporation's 1973 album, Freedom for the Stallion (a different edit version, which was the single, later appeared on certain editions of the band's follow-up album, 1974's Rockin' Soul). It was released as the second single from the album in early 1974 to follow-up Stallion?'?s title song, which had peaked at #63 on the Hot 100.

Initially, "Rock the Boat" appeared as though it would flop, as months went by without any radio airplay or sales activity. Not until the song became a disco/club favorite in New York did Top 40 radio finally pick up on the song, leading the record to finally enter the Hot 100 and zip up the chart to #1 the week of July 6, 1974, in only its seventh week on the chart (and fourth week in the Top 40). The record also reached the top 10 in the United Kingdom (number 6). "Rock the Boat" is considered one of the earliest disco songs. Some authorities proclaim it to be the first disco song to hit #1, while others give that distinction to "Love's Theme" by Love Unlimited Orchestra, a chart-topper from earlier in 1974. The song became a gold record. It is a heavy airplay favorite on oldie and adult-contemporary stations today.
