American Something is a song about what it feels like to live in modern America. It doesn't feel patriotic and it doesn't feel good... it feels uncomfortable. We hope our new tune "American Something" will move you to stand strong and take the power back

This single is part of a collaborative split release with fellow San Fran
cisco rockers Northern Waste. Check out their single/video, "Fump Truck," here:


Look into my eyes
And tell me that
Difference can be good
But don't rely on it

Cover up what you can
And lie lie lie
Money is the mean
Or so you try

There is nothing left here to do
There nothing left for you

There nothing left here to do
Block our country and take our rights why don't you

The heat has kept the race intense
Going through the roof
Democracy feeling thin
There nothing left to do
The heat has kept the people straight
Now they have to choose
Americans can't be trump'd
They don't have a clue

There is nothing left here to do

There nothing left here to do
There nothing left for you

Alvie & The Breakfast Pigs San Francisco, California

We are a Rock 'n' Roll band from San Francisco, CA. We play loud, fast trash blues rock n' roll.

Alvie & the Breakfast Pigs third EP, Plastic Surgery, is slated for release in late August 2018.

This record is seeping with snark and aggression, playfulness and annoyance, abdication and heroism. It’s the hurts-so-good breath after a pull of whiskey. It’s BDSM without a safe word.
