Via email from Dean, and located at Sovereignty Alliance, I present, Steve Vaus, recut and loaded for bear.
STEVE VAUS, whose anthem "WE MUST TAKE AMERICA BACK" got him blacklisted by the recording industry 17 years ago, has re-recorded the song with updated lyrics for 2009 -- and, this time, he believes, nothing can silence his haunting and inspirational track.
In 1992, Vaus signed a recording contract with RCA. The resulting CD was called "WE MUST TAKE AMERICA BACK," and the song struck a chord with listeners.
The track rocketed onto the BILLBOARD TOP 100 CHART. It was the most requested song at many radio stations coast-to-coast. Vaus' star was rising. He was immediately put out on a nationwide tour.
But, complaints from a handful of big-city radio stations about the conservative, patriotic nature of the song, prompted RCA, inexplicably and inconceivably, to pull the CD off the radio and out of stores. Vaus' tour was cancelled, days after it began. In fact, the week Vaus was dropped, the song was still climbing the charts. It was number 56 still with a bullet. RCA received thousands of phone calls from outraged listeners but they refused to reconsider and subsequently prohibited Vaus from re-recording or re-releasing the song for five years.
"Being gagged like that, I was devastated. Particularly because in the same timeframe the ACLU made headlines defending the rights of other recording artists to sing about killing cops and violent sexual acts. But they had no interest in defending my right to sing about God and country," said Vaus. "But now, with updated lyrics, that reflect my frustration and anger with where America is headed, the song is more relevant than ever. It is a rallying cry. And in this age of instant internet downloads and podcasts there's no record company or radio station that can block it."
