Great American Something
- Artist: Icewagon Flu

ICEWAGON FLU is one of the most original bands to come on to the music scene in years. Since 2001 the band has created a fun mixture of genre bending world music pop, which has solidified a growing cult following and insured a place in Indy rock. While releasing four full length studio albums, one EP, included on five compilations, and six film soundtracks, The Flu has toured all over the east coast with bands as far reaching as Black 47, Eric Burden and The Animals, Carbon Leaf, Flogging Molly, Scythian, and Roger McGuinn. With the release of their biggest studio album to date, The Great American Something, Icewagon Flu is heard on independent and college radios throughout the world. Produced by Push Stars bass player Dan McLaughlin, the album boasts, "five, count them, five top ten hits." And a "bunch of other stuff everyone should dig." "Although one cannot certainly call an album by an unsigned band a "statement" record, The Great American Something comes awfully close." (Nude as the News) "A well crafted album from start to finish." (Epinions) They've been called The Rolling Stones meets XTC meets The Hothouse Flowers meets They Might Be Giants meets The Pogues, but you shouldn't believe any of that crap. The Flu are exactly what they say they are.... The Greatest Band of All Times. "If you've ever been blown away by fresh instrumentation, and unique songwriting, that makes most of the crap on the radio seem as generic and flavorless as it really is, you will definitely be able to appreciate.... Icewagon Flu." (XM Satellite Radio)
