YMMV / America

  • Adorkable: These guys make Hawaiian shirts, thick glasses, and mismatched patterns look, well, adorable.
  • Covered Up: "Muskrat Love" was originally by Willis Alan Ramsey (who called it "Muskrat Candlelight"). America's version of the song was in turn Covered Up by Captain and Tennille.
    • The version of "Your Move" most people have heard of is the Diana Ross cover, mainly for being the song that was sampled on that one vaporwave track. Not many people know it was originally an America song.
  • Dork Age: Between Dan Peek leaving and the release of the Album Hourglass in the early nineties, most of the band's output was forgettable pop.
  • Ear Worm
  • Epic Riff: "Ventura Highway"
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Check out the comments here for examples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qk-7n1hdK3M
  • Misattributed Song: "A Horse with No Name" is commonly mistaken for a Neil Young tune. Understandable, since the tune was directly influenced by Young's work. And Dewey Bunnell's voice does sort of resemble Young's.
    • "Sister Golden Hair" is often thought to be a George Harrison song, mainly because of the very Harrison-esque slide guitar.
  • Mr. Fanservice: See below.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Gerry Beckley appeared in publicity photos for one album in a pair of pink overalls...with no shirt underneath.
