What an American Woman!

What an 'American Woman'!

And Guess Who was behind this iconic hit on this day (9th May) in 1970?

No - it was the band Guess Who who started a three week run at Number 1 in the US singles chart.

They wrote the song after the guitarist broke a string while they were playing a heavy rift on start and the rest of the band just started jamming with it.
