The Birthers: S/T



The Birthers are an American pop music band that was founded in 2008 in order to perform during presidential campaign rallies of Hillary Clinton. The band broke up after Clinton failed to get the Democratic nomination. However, the band soon reformed with a new group of musicians devoted to the McCain/Palin campaign.

Most critics panned the band's music as a throwback to earlier sounds of the 1950s and 1960s, such as Pat Boone and Mitch Miller. In spite of poor reviews, the band's albums continued to sell to largely white, Midwestern and Southern audiences.


By late 2010, it was clear that The Birthers had carved out a niche in the music industry. They marketed their recordings as being "performed by real Americans" and included copies of band members' official birth certificates in all of their recording packages.

The band's single Show Us the Birth Certificate reached #3 on the Billboard Top 40 chart in February 2011. In March of that year, billionaire reality TV show star Donald Trump selected the song as a potential 2012 presidential campaign theme.
