“America” is a song by English indie rock band Razorlight and is the fourth track to their self-titled second studio album, Razorlight (2006).
It was written by Johnny Borrell and Andy Burrows (credited to Borrell, Burrows, and Razorlight) and was also released as the second single from that album on 2 October 2006.
The song garnered a negative reception from critics for its attempt at both political commentary and transatlantic crossover appeal. “America” became the band’s first and only number-one single in the United Kingdom and was the country’s 17th best selling single of that year. The song also peaked within the top 10 in Ireland, the Netherlands and New Zealand, and within the top 40 in Austria, Belgium, France, Switzerland and Germany.
