The Dead Daisies version of Grand Funk Railroad’s classic ‘We’re An American Band’ has surpassed more than 1 million views on Facebook and YouTube!
The group released the footage on July 4 to celebrate our country’s independence and remind people what’s great about America. The band is currently finishing up their last leg of their world tour in support of their critically acclaimed live album, Live & Louder.
“We first performed the song for our troops in South Korea. We wanted to bring a little bit of something ‘American’ to our men and women in uniform, and give them a taste of home. The song went over so well we decided to keep playing it and then recorded it for the album.” – John Corabi, Lead Singer of Dead Daisies
The Dead Daisies return to the states and will kick off the aptly titled ‘Dirty Dozen Tour‘ in Chicago on August 10.
