Righteous is the 1994 debut release by North Carolina funk band DAG.

Produced by Grammy nominee and local record producer & songwriter, John Custer, this work of 1970s-style solid beats and creative imagination received terrific reviews. A quote from VIBE Magazine hailed the album as "...one of the best funk records since 1978. DAG's debut, Righteous, is definitely some of the most ass-grinding grooves you've heard since back in the day." Featured songs include "Sweet Little Lass," "Righteous (City Pain)" and "Lovely Jane." Numerous additional musicians contribute to Righteous, including Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section drummer Roger Hawkins and jazz trumpeter Jeremy Davenport.
