Lynyrd Skynyrd pronounced 'lĕh-'nérd 'skin-'nérd

(pronounced 'lĕh-'nérd 'skin-'nérd), commonly referred to as Pronounced, is the debut album from Lynyrd Skynyrd, released in 1973.

It features the hit songs "I Ain't the One," "Gimme Three Steps," "Simple Man," "Tuesday's Gone," and "Free Bird". "Tuesday's Gone" became the theme song of the 1996 film Happy Gilmore and "Free Bird" was the single that first gave the band national attention and is now a staple of rock radio as well as a rock concert cliché.
