"Funny Vibe" is a single released by Living Colour from their 1988 debut album Vivid.[1][2][3] It features Chuck D and Flavor Flav from Public Enemy.

Rolling Stone magazine wrote about the song in a 1990 Living Colour interview, saying "The words – "No I'm not gonna hurt you/No I'm not gonna harm you/And I try not to hate you/So why you want to give me that/Funny Vibe!" – spelled out with machine-gun eloquence Reid's rage and frustration in communicating his vision to a rigid, unapologetic music industry rife with racial stereotyping and de facto discrimination."[3]
