"Go Your Own Way" is a song by the British/American rock band Fleetwood Mac, released as a single in January 1977.

Background[edit]

Written by Lindsey Buckingham, it was the first single from the group's 1977 album Rumours. It peaked at number ten on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the group's first top-ten hit in the U.S. In the UK, the single wasn't as successful, and would only reach #38. However, the song has become very popular in the U.K. since 'Rumours' receiving decent radio airplay and re-entering the singles chart on many occasions. This has led to the song selling gradually over the years and has therefore been certified Silver in the U.K. for Digital sales of over 200,000 copies. The song was also a #1 hit in Netherlands. It is ranked number 120 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and is on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list. The song is about the complicated relationship that Buckingham and fellow Fleetwood Mac member Stevie Nicks were having.[1]
