Back in the USA is the debut studio album (and second album overall, following 1969's live album Kick Out the Jams) by American rock band MC5. The central focus of the album is the band's movement away from the raw, thrashy sound pioneered and captured on their first release, the live album Kick Out the Jams (1969). This was due in part to producer Jon Landau's distaste for the rough psychedelic rock movement, and his adoration for the straightforward rock and roll of the 1950s.

They told you in school about freedom But when you try to be free they never let ya They said "it's easy, nothing to it" And now the army's out to get ya Sixty nine America in terminal stasis The air's so thick it's like drowning in molasses I'm sick and tired of paying these dues And. i'm finally getting hip to the American ruse

Dropped by Elektra, the MC5 were swiftly signed by Atlantic Records, though manager Sinclair scarcely had time to savour their good fortune; arrested for possession of marijuana in 1969, he was put away for 10 years, despite protests from John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Atlantic paired the group with Rolling Stone producer Jon Landau, who had little time for the group’s avant leanings. Amid an album of lockstep classic rock’n’roll sounds, Back in the USA’s penultimate track was a headfuck, with a freeform structure that seemed to morph into a different song every few bars, Kramer and Sonic swapping between proto-punk riffage, acid-blues squall and repurposed rock’n’roll ramalama, as Dennis Thompson beat martial tattoos on his snare drum.
