Happy Birthday America- You Rock!


It’s the 240th birthday of the United States of America, birthplace of liberty, baseball… and rock and roll! To celebrate, here’s three distinctly AMERICAN artists with some distinctly AMERICAN music!

Let’s start with Grand Funk Railroad, heavy metal forefathers, singing about life on the road with their hard rockin’ 1973 hit “We’re an American Band”:


Next, The Charlie Daniels Band doing their 1980 anthem “In America”:

And finally, who better than America’s King of Rock’n’Roll, Elvis Presley, and his stirring “An American Trilogy” from the 1973 TV special ALOHA FROM HAWAII:

Enjoy your birthday, America! Everyone have a safe and Happy 4th of July!
