"Rebels Are We" is a song by American R&B band Chic. It was the first single from their fourth studio album, 1980's Real People. The song, featuring a solo lead vocal by Luci Martin, marked a change of direction for the band; incorporating harder rock/new wave elements into their trademark funk sound. Though not as successful as CHIC's iconic disco-era anthems (peaking at #8 on Billboard's "Hot Soul/Black Singles" chart and #61 on Billboard's "Hot 100" chart), the track remains a fan favorite and has attracted critical praise over the years. The song has been included in many compilation albums such as The Best of Chic, Volume 2 and The Very Best of Chic.
