"Bop Gun (Endangered Species)" is a song by the funk band Parliament, the lead track on their 1977 album Funkentelechy Vs. the Placebo Syndrome. It was released as the album's first single. The song's lead vocal is performed by Glen Goins, his last performance on a P-Funk record.

The Bop Gun is an imaginary weapon that makes whatever it shoots funky. It was used as a stage prop in Parliament's late-1970s concerts. George Clinton is depicted wielding it on the cover of the Funkentelechy Vs. the Placebo Syndrome album.
