    Video for the song We're An American Band taken during the pivotal recording sessions for the self-titled album.

    Check out my Grand Funk Railroad cover of I'm your Captain/Closer to Home:


    Rock on!

    Lyrics:
    Out on the road for forty days
    Last night in Little Rock, put me in a haze
    Sweet, sweet Connie was doin' her act
    She had the whole show and that's a natural fact

    Up all night with Freddie King
    I got to tell you, poker's his thing
    Booze and ladies, keep me right
    As long as we can make it to the show tonight

    We're an American band
    We're an American band
    We're comin' to your town
    We'll help you party it down
    We're an American band

    Four young chiquitas in Omaha
    Waitin' for the band to return from the show
    A feelin' good, feelin' right and it's Saturday night
    The hotel detective, he was outta sight

    Now these fine ladies, they had a plan
    They was out to meet the boys in the band
    They said, Come on dudes, let's get it on!
    And we proceeded to tear that hotel down

    We're an American band
    We're an American band
    We're comin' to your town
    We'll help you party it down
    We're an American band x4

    We're an American band (whooo)
    We're an American band (whooo)
    We're an American band (whooo)

  • The Dead Daisies - Were An American Band

    3:27

    The Live & Louder World Tour is happening NOW. These are the upcoming US shows:


    For more dates, please visit

    Influenced by 70’s and early 80’s hard rock, The Dead Daisies sound is soulful and accessible – equal parts of The Faces, Aerosmith and Foreigner: muscular vocals, bluesy riffs, big choruses, powerful melodies and strong hooks. With stellar musicianship and pulverizing live shows, fans across the globe are discovering the band that is bringing back Rock & Roll!

    The current incarnation of The Dead Daisies is taken from a musical collective created originally by a rotating line-up that has left their mark on the high-class brand of Rock & Roll the band is known for. The band features in their ranks some of the finest Rockers on the planet, among them one of the premier lead guitarists of this day and age, Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio). He completes a powerhouse lineup consisting of charismatic singer John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, The Scream), bassist extraordinaire Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), the drumming powerhouse of Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner) and bringing the thunder from down under, Australian rhythm guitarist David Lowy (Red Phoenix, Mink).





  • BPMD - Were An American Band | Napalm Records

    3:26

    Pre-order American Made here:

    out June 12

    The wait is almost over! BPMD – featuring heavy metal icons Bobby Blitz (Overkill) on vocals, drummer Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs, Sons of Apollo), bassist Mark Menghi (Metal Allegiance) and guitarist Phil Demmel (Vio-lence, ex-Machine Head) – are gearing up to release their debut full-length album of '70s rock covers, American Made, this Friday, June 12 via Napalm Records.

    Bassist Mark Menghi says about We're An American Band:
    “The goal of American Made was, and is, to pay tribute to some of the great music of the '70s, in particular, American music from the 70’s. We love music from all over the world; England, Germany, Brazil, Canada, Australia, etc… but at the end of the day, we are an American band, so it made sense to pay tribute to one of the greatest American bands of the '70s by covering one of the greatest songs of that decade by the mighty Grand Funk…
    Being that this song was originally written about being on tour, we’ve been reminiscing about days on the road and how much we miss our fans! Touring is the lifeblood of most bands - we can’t wait to perform some shows and play these BPMD tunes, and see music flourish in a live setting once again.”

    Frontman Bobby Blitz adds:
    'American Band', in my opinion was the icing on the cake for this project. The idea of American Made, the 70's called for it. The song was iconic then and truly stood the test of time. The call and answer between my vox and Phil's guitar on the outro make the track that much more special.

    Bergo '45 Song of the Week #236 - Dwight's Pick for 1/7/18:

    We're An American Band by Grand Funk Railroad off the album We're An American Band (1973)
    Capitol Records

    I'm in a band. --- You're in a band.

    Everybody's in a band! Or was. Or will be.

    And being in a R n' R B-A-N-D
    comes with certain responsibilities ( just hear me out ).

    A devoted musician lives for his music -- BUT ,
    is that life informed with any grasp of Rock History??
    Does it have some sense of creative purpose?

    OR -- is it just a pole dance for the almighty dollar?


    - Dwight Lewis

    This is a weekly dive into the musical mind of Bergo '45. Each week, a new song is chosen by a different member of the band. Check out the playlist to see all of the past selections. Take a chair, grab a towel and give it a listen....


    Grand Funk Railroad, sometimes shortened as Grand Funk, is an American rock band popular during the 1970s, when they toured extensively and played to packed arenas worldwide. David Fricke of Rolling Stone magazine once said, You cannot talk about rock in the 1970s without talking about Grand Funk Railroad! Known for their crowd-pleasing arena rock style, the band was well-regarded by audiences despite a relative lack of critical acclaim. The band's name is a play on words of the Grand Trunk Western Railroad, a line that ran through the band's home town of Flint, Michigan.

    We're An American Band is the seventh studio album by American hard rock band Grand Funk Railroad, credited as Grand Funk. The album was released by Capitol Records on July 15, 1973 (see 1973 in music) and was certified gold by the RIAA a little over a month after its release. Two singles were released from the album. The first single, We're an American Band, was released on July 2, 1973 and the second, Walk Like a Man, was released on October 29, 1973. Both singles were sung by drummer Don Brewer. There is an addition to the band on this release - Craig Frost - who plays the organ, clavinet and Moog. Craig was credited as an additional musician on Phoenix which was released the previous year.

    The album cover was originally covered in gold-colored foil on the outside, and the initial run of pressings were pressed in clear, dark yellow vinyl. The album has been reissued many times and is currently available in the Compact Disc format. A Quadraphonic mix of the album was available in the Quadraphonic 8-Track cartridge format.

    The album is #200 of the National Association of Recording Merchandisers (NARM) Definitive 200 albums of all time.
