Funky Man is a single by Dee Dee King, the rapper alias of Ramones bassist Dee Dee Ramone. It was released as a 12-inch single, with the b-side being an extended dub version of the song.[1] The cover art work was by James Rizzi.

The single was recorded after Ramone was in a drug treatment center where he was introduced to rap.[2] He was still in the Ramones when it was released, although he left the band in 1989 and then released a full album under his King alias, Standing in the Spotlight.
