Icon is a compilation album released by Grand Funk Railroad in May 2013.
A genre-bending blend of funk, boogie, heavy rock, and electrifying live shows led to Grand Funk Railroad's emergence as one of America's top iconic rock bands of the 1970s. Produced by Todd Rundgren, Grand Funk Railroad's platinum-certified 1973 album, We're An American Band, rose to No. 2 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart, propelled by its definitive title track, which became the band's first No. 1 single.
Grand Funk Railroad's success continued with the 1974 release of Shinin' On, which spawned the band's second No. 1 Pop single, 'The Loco-Motion.' Today, 'We're An American Band,' 'The Loco-Motion,' 'Some Kind Of Wonderful' (No. 3 Pop), and 'Bad Time' (No. 4 Pop), all of which are included on the new ICON collection, are popular staples of Classic Rock radio.
