Macho Man è il secondo singolo inciso nel 1978 dal gruppo americano dei Village People, primo estratto dal loro secondo album che da esso prendeva il titolo, appena un anno dopo la loro formazione a New York. Il primo singolo era stato “I Am What I Am”, che però non aveva riscosso un grande successo, difatti Macho Man fu il brano che sancì il loro debutto nelle classifiche americane, spianando così la strada a quello che solo pochi mesi dopo sarebbe divenuto uno dei più grandi successi musicali di tutti i tempi, ovvero Y.M.C.A..
Come suggerisce il titolo, il testo esalta i risultati fisici del duro lavoro e dell’attività fisica e fu scritto in fretta e furia il giorno stesso in cui il gruppo, dopo esser stato messo sotto contratto, si apprestava a recarsi per la prima volta in sala di registrazione.
E’ stata spesso utilizzata in film e telefilm per accompagnare scene di fitness.
