A Horse with No Name is the first single by the American band America . The single comes from the album America .

On their debut album, America , was not initially the song A Horse with No Name , but on the advice of producer Ian Samwell was decided the song still add to the album.

The song was initially Desert Song to be called, but this was later amended. The song was written on a rainy day in England and has the intention to provide a heat and drought desert . The underlying origin of the song is the youth of Dewey Bunnell , he grew up in the vicinity of Vandenberg Air Force Base [1] .

The song was in some parts of the United States, including Kansas City , banned because the song was referring to drug use [2] ("horse" is a United States used synonym for heroin ). The song then won the first position on the U.S. chart .

In the Netherlands the number on the eleventh position, was the highest ranking of the band America in the Netherlands.
