Think was a studio group put together by producers and songwriters Lou Stallman and Bobby Susser in 1971. The group released a single, "Once You Understand", on Laurie Records which included a spoken dialogue between male and female teenagers and their parents regarding a youth overdose. The single hit #23 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1971.[1] It was also a hit in the United Kingdom and Germany, but was banned by some radio stations in the U.S. for its controversial "heroin" content. The flip side of the single titled "Gather" was a short poem sung about life being short. "Once You Understand" has also been frequently sampled by hip hop artists in later decades.

This group is not to be confused with a West Coast-based band of the same name that recorded two singles for Columbia Records in 1968 and 1969.
