As an enduring pop hit, Redbone's "Come and Get Your Love" has had millions of plays on air and on YouTube with the pioneering rock band's visually powerful performance on TV's "The Midnight Special" in 1974, when the song was released.

That clip begins with a powwow dancer performing in front of the band, introducing millions to a Native traditional dance they had most likely never seen before.

In 2014, the mega-budget sci-fi film "Guardians of the Galaxy" used the song in a key opening scene and on the official soundtrack, garnering a whole new generation of fans.
