"We're an American Band" (from the album of the same name) is a 1973 song by the band Grand Funk Railroad. It was the group's first #1 single. Written by Don Brewer and produced by Todd Rundgren, its huge chart success broadened Grand Funk's appeal. It was sung by Don Brewer rather than Mark Farner, who usually took lead vocals.
It is the 99th song on VH1's 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs.
