“Get It On” is a song by the British glam rock group T. Rex, featured on their 1971 album Electric Warrior. Written by frontman Marc Bolan, “Get It On” was the second chart-topper for T. Rex on the UK Singles Chart. In the United States, it was retitled “Bang a Gong (Get It On)” to avoid confusion with a song of the same name by the group Chase. It spent four weeks at the top in the UK, starting 24 July 1971. It peaked on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart at number ten and at #12 in the Cash Box Top 100 in March 1972, becoming the band’s only major US hit. The song reached No. 12 in Canada in March 1972.
