Old Weird America was a term coined by music writer Greil Marcus in his book Invisible Republic: Bob Dylan's Basement Tapes (later retitled The Old Weird America for the paperback edition). He used the term to describe the often eerie country, blues and folk music featured on the Anthology of American Folk Music, and on Bob Dylan's Basement Tapes.

The term has been revived via the musical genre called New Weird America.
