American Music is the debut album by American rock and roll band The Blasters, released in 1980.

The song "Marie Marie" became a breakthrough hit for Shakin' Stevens in 1980 (from This Ole House). Matchbox recorded the song for their 1980 album Midnite Dynamos. In 1997, the album was released on CD by Hightone Records.

The tracks "Marie Marie" and "American Music" were rerecorded for The Blasters' second and wider-distributed eponymous album.

The Blasters are an American rock and roll band formed in 1979 in Downey, California, by brothers Phil Alvin (vocals and guitar) and Dave Alvin (guitar), with bass guitarist John Bazz and drummer Bill Bateman. Their self-described "American Music" is a blend of rockabilly, early rock and roll, punk rock, mountain music, and rhythm and blues and country.
