The Blasters

1721 W. Canal St., Milwaukee, WI, 53233
1-800-PAYS-BIG
Though they were better associated with the punk-rock scene at the time, in 1980 The Blasters released a song that would become a roots-rock rally cry, “American Music.” “We got the Louisiana boogie and the Delta blues,” they sang. “We got country swing and rockabilly, too/ We got jazz, country-western and Chicago blues/ It’s the greatest music that you ever knew/ It’s American music/ It’s the greatest sound, right from the U.S.A.” Three decades later, the band’s lineup has changed considerably, but its love of American music remains untarnished.
