Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, songwriters, and composers, releases The Presidents of the United States of America, the album-matching guitar folio from the two-time Grammy®-nominated alternative rock band, with songs written in both standard music notation and TAB.

Perfect for guitarists who are fans of the band and alternative rock, The Presidents of the United States of America songbook is band-authorized with authentic transcriptions. The book includes a foreword from guitarist Dave Dederer, exclusive band commentary for each song, interviews with the band members, and never-before-seen photos. For reference, a brief explanation of tablature and guitar notation is also included.

As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving the environment, the songbook is printed on 100% recycled paper.

Known for writing short, simple, and infectious punk songs, The Presidents of the United States of America became a hit after releasing their self-titled debut album in 1995. MTV and rock radio stations began airing "Lump,” followed by their next radio hit "Kitty." The single “Peaches” off the same album was nominated for the “Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal” Grammy award, in addition to being nominated for “Best Alternative Music Performance.”
