The Dead Daises Celebrate Independence Day With ‘We’re an American Band’ Live Video

Subscribe to Lone Star 98.7 on

Happy 4th everyone! To get you in the spirit to celebrate the good ol’ U.S. of A., the Dead Daisies are releasing the live video of their cover of the Grand Funk Railroad classic, “We’re an American Band.”

The clip, seen above, not only features the band playing the song onstage with a backdrop of the red, white and blue flag, but also turns a spotlight on a number of U.S. landmarks and highlights from their travel playing for American audiences.

Singer John Corabi says, “We first did ‘American Band’ by Grand Funk Railroad 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. So, what better way than a classic American tune by a legendary American band. The song went over so well we decided to keep playing it and subsequently recorded it for our Live and Louder album. Enjoy the Daisies version, the video and your FREEDOM the troops are fighting for on this celebration of our independence as a young, sovereign nation!!!”

Corabi is joined on the song by fellow Dead Daisies’ Doug Aldrich, David Lowy, Marco Mendoza and Brian Tichy. The band just wrapped shows in Europe and will be returning stateside for “The Dirty Dozen” North American headline trek. Dates and ticketing details can be found here.

Meanwhile, the Live and Louder album gives the band a chance to showcase their talents onstage. Head here to pick up a copy.
