"Bustin' Loose (Part 1)" was a hit song for Chuck Brown & the Soul Searchers.[1] Released from the album of the same name, it spent four weeks at the top of the R&B singles chart in early 1979 and peaked at number thirty-four on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.[1][2] The Nelly song "Hot in Herre" contains an interpolation of "Bustin' Loose".

From the opening of Nationals Park until the 2015 season, the song was played after every home run the Washington Nationals hit. It was replaced by the Jessie J song "Bang Bang. It has since returned for the 2017 season after every home run hit by a Washington National.
