“Come and Get Your Love” by Redbone made waves in 1974, reaching #5 on Billboard's Hot 100. The catchy earworm spent an impressive 18 weeks in the Top 40, selling a million copies, and becoming certified gold by the RIAA. Written and produced by Native American and Mexican brothers, Pat and Lolly Vegas, the song made Redbone the first Native American band to ever reach Billboard’s top five.
