American Slang (3:41)

Cover of American Slang

From American Slang and 7 other releases

American Slang is the first single from The Gaslight Anthem’s third studio release, American Slang. The song was released on Facebook and MySpace on March 23rd, the album is due out June 14th in the UK and June 15th in the US.

According to the American Slang Songfacts, Brian Fallon was hesitant to use the song title. He told Spinner: “You call something American anything you better have something to back that up with,” he said. “It’s like an English band calling a song English something, you have a big thing to live up to. The song is kind of about my American life, about the things that have happened. They present you this American dream and it’s not like this specific thing, you find out you just have to work. You don’t step outside and get famous, that’s not the way it goes. It’s like that anywhere else in the world.”
