"We're Gonna Groove" is a song written by soul artist Ben E. King and his songwriting partner James A. Bethea with the original title "Groovin'", and performed most famously by English rock group Led Zeppelin, as the opening number during their 1970 UK and European tours.
It was scheduled to appear on Led Zeppelin II, but like "Since I've Been Loving You", "We're Gonna Groove" didn't make the line-up of the second Led Zeppelin album. It belatedly appeared, in a heavily produced version Jimmy Page made at his Sol Studios, on Coda, after the group had split following the death of drummer John Bonham.
According to the liner notes for the 1982 album Coda, the song was originally recorded at Morgan Studios, London on 25 June 1969 just after a short British tour including some BBC appearances, and shows at Royal Albert Hall and the 1969 Bath Festival, but it was later acknowledged to have come from a concert recorded at the Royal Albert Hall on 9 January 1970, with several edits and the guitar parts overdubbed. The original concert performance, including the original guitar part can be heard on the 2003 Led Zeppelin DVD where the entire first disc is devoted to the 1970 concert and the song forms the opening number of the performance. The second song of the concert – I Can't Quit You Baby – was similarly adapted for the Coda album.
