WAR is a world-renowned American funk band best known for the hit songs “Spill the Wine,” “Why Can’t We Be Friends?,” “Low Rider,” and many more. WAR’s lively mix of funk, rock, Latin, reggae, jazz and R&B and message of brotherhood and harmony made them one of the greatest bands of all time.
Known as the original street band, WAR was brought together by veteran record producer/songwriter Jerry Goldstein (“My Boyfriend’s Back,” “Hang on Sloopy,” “I Want Candy”) and rock legend Eric Burdon (ex-lead singer of the top British band The Animals). WAR from the beginning was a concept & musical laboratory to experiment with the blending of many musical styles and influences.
WAR has been honored with 17 gold, platinum or multi-platinum awards which include the triple platinum The World Is A Ghetto (the thought provoking title song “The World Is A Ghetto” fueled the album to the number one chart spot in Billboard and was voted Billboard’s Album of the Year), double platinum Why Can’t We Be Friends? and Greatest Hits, platinum Deliver The Word, WAR Live, All Day Music, Best Of WAR and…more and Platinum Jazz, and gold Eric Burdon Declares WAR, Galaxy, and The Music Band.
