"America" is the second studio-release single from American rap metal artist Deuce and is a politically themed song with a stronger metal influence than some of Deuce's other music. It was released on January 10, 2012, a week earlier than originally planned due to a leak of the full music video in late December 2011. The song is the third track on Deuce's debut album titled Nine Lives. As of April 2012, America had sold 36,000 copies,[2] making it the most commercially successful single of the album. This single, along with "Let's Get It Crackin'", was featured as part of a fan-based remix contest held by Deuce and Five Seven Music titled "Deuce REMIXXXED"

On July 3, a single was released for Independence Day which was called the "America(n) Pride", which contained "America", two remixes, and the music video on iTunes.[3]
