Influential funk band. One of the giants of the genre.

These guys fused funk and rock in a way that few other acts have done before or since. They clearly influenced Rock & Roll Hall of Famers such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who covered one of their songs ("Love Rollercoaster"). They also influenced other bands who arguably should be in the Hall, such as the Commodores (who were viewed as Motown's answer to the Ohio Players at one time) and KC & The Sunshine Band.
