Lynyrd Skynyrd (pronounced LEN-ərd-SKIN-ərd) is an American rock band best known for popularizing the Southern rock genre during the 1970s.

The band gained worldwide recognition for its live performances and signature songs "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Free Bird".

The band has sold 28 million records in the United States.
