Atomic Dog" is a song by George Clinton from his 1982 album Computer Games. The track was released as a single in December of 1982 and became the P-Funk collective's last to reach #1 on the US R&B Chart. The single failed to reach the Top 100 of the Pop Chart at all, though it has arguably attained greater popular stature over the past two decades. Some have called it the greatest funk song of all time
Atomic Dog is one of George Clinton's most heavily sampled songs, appearing in more than 50 songs, including the rapper Snoop Dogg's song "Who Am I (What's My Name)?" One of the song's lines, "bow wow wow yippie yo yippie yay" was made popular by early 90s hiphop G-funk, as it was interpolated in Dr. Dre's song "F*** wit Dre Day (And Everybody's Celebratin')" and other songs by Snoop Dogg and Bow Wow.
