"One" is a song composed by the rock band Creed. It is the 10th and final track on their 1997 album My Own Prison, it describes the lack of unity in modern society and includes a criticism of affirmative action. It was the band's fourth single. It was also included as a B-Side on the maxi single for their song "With Arms Wide Open".

"One" was released as the last single from the band's debut album My Own Prison in early 1999, and was arguably the most successful single from the album, peaking at #49 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart. "One" was also the only song off Creed's first album that charted on the Billboard Hot 100, charting at number 70. It is one of Creed's highest charting rock singles as well, peaking at number two on both the Mainstream Rock Tracks and the Modern Rock Tracks. On the former chart, it was ranked the number one track of 1999, despite its #2 peak position. This song was used as WWE superstar Ricky Steamboat's entrance theme in 2006 and 2007 RAW Live Events.
