"Hollywood's Not America" is a song by American pop singer/songwriter Ferras and is featured on his debut studio album, Aliens & Rainbows. It was released on January 29, 2008, as the lead single from that album.

Soon after the single's release, it was revealed that "Hollywood's Not America" would feature as the exit music on popular reality TV show American Idol.[1] However, Graham Colton's "Best Days" was used for the first elimination of the semi-finals. Additionally, on February 29, 2008, it was announced that "Celebrate Me Home" performed by Ruben Studdard would be the exit song for the current season, in contradiction to earlier reports that "Hollywood's Not America" will be used.

The music video for the single is currently featured on the cable station "The N" Television for Teens. A remake/mash-up video was created for the video to promote the top rated Canadian teen television drama "Degrassi: The Next Generation." The video featuring Ferras himself was played with the piano.
