“There’s a Riot Goin’ On” is a missing track of the 1971 eponymous album by Sly & the Family Stone. It is simply indexed in the album’s tracklist, no clue nor commentary shedding any light on its strange status. It ends side A, when the stylus leaves the vinyl’s groove and when the listening covertly moves from the recorded music to its environment. In its silence, it is a revolt without a manifesto, its meaning seeming to appear only in intervals.
