The Dead Daisies premiere “We’re An American Band” live video

The Dead Daisies have released a live video of them covering Grand Funk Railroad‘s classic “We’re An American Band” in celebration of Independence Day yesterday. Vocalist John Corabi commented:

“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!!!”
