The Village People is an American disco group that formed in 1977, well known for their on-stage costumes depicting American masculine cultural stereotypes as well as their catchy tunes and suggestive lyrics.

The group scored a number of disco and dance hits, including “Macho Man”, “Go West”, the classic club medley of “San Francisco (You’ve Got Me) / In Hollywood”, “In the Navy”, and their greatest hit, “Y.M.C.A.”. They have sold more than 100 million records worldwide.
