American Holiday is an unofficial CD released by the label "Tornado" in 1995. Tracks 1-9 were recorded at a show in St. Louis, Missouri on August 31, 1994. Tracks 10-17 were recorded at Madison Square Garden in New York City on December 5 of the same year.

This CD is notable for its remarkably low quality packaging and egregious song titles. Nearly every song listed on the CD has the incorrect title, such as "My Name Is Jonas" being labelled as "Bet On You" and "Surf Wax America" being labelled as "What America Needs", among many others. Along with these discrepancies, the bootleg is notorious for being one of the band's first, following "Geezer".
