Top 5 Songs about America

Today we celebrate our independence day...

And I just wanted to thank every single person in our history that has ensured that July 4th, 2012 is another day of freedom in America. So here's a list of great songs about 'Murica


Honorable Mention: God Bless the USA. Lee Greenwood. This reminds me of the Cedar Point laser show, which is awesome, but those memories are also filled with Ohioans who flooded Cedar Point, which lacks awes... too many negatives to put on a positive list.

5. Party in the USA
OMG JUST KIDDING YOU GUYZ lulz... sheesh...

5. American Gladiators Theme Song

This time, not kidding.

This is the classic show where genetically perfect half human, half-titans took on the average american, if average americans had less than 5% body fat. This was Vin Diesel vs. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, 1990's style. Outside of the name of the show, there is really no relationship between this show and America, but they did have sweet names like Nitro, Zap, and Viper. 


4. Anything by Kid Rock, but specifically Born Free

I will bow to the shining sea and celebrate God's grace on thee

With Americans more polarized than ever, it's great that someone is out there trying to remind people that we are still the best damn country ever, regardless of political opinions. The original American Badass, Kid Rock has spent the last few years trying to reignite faith and patriotism of Americans and specifically Detroiters. His whole arsenal of songs revolve around enjoying what you have, that and something 30 pack of Stroh's and a 30 pack of hoes... 

Top 3 after the jump...

3. America the Beautiful - Ray Charles

Many good versions; this one's the best

Just a great song, and if this doesn't remind you of The Sandlot, I will unfollow you on twitter. That's a real threat, right? Oh hell, I'll just link to it:


2. Team America - America, F*ck Yeah

I couldn't put this as number one because believe it or not, it's actually a satire. I don't know about you, but when I listen to this song, I hear it as a rally of the greatness of America. Other people, including the creators of the song, can pretend it's making fun of being overly patriotic at unncessary times, but I know the real inspiration behind it is sincere love for America... right..? Hello? Sportsmanship! Books! 


1. Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue - Toby Keith

Yes, war is stupid and sucky. That's not what this song supports. This is all about how we won't take your shit you freedom-hating countries. America is friggin' sweet, and if you want to attack us because we are allowed sit around watching Boy Meets World reruns in our underwear every single saturday, we aren't going to stand for that. We like freedom, and we aren't going to give it up. So there

I love you, America. Have a great day, all!


  1. "Real American," Hulk Hogan's theme song, needs to be on here as well.

  2. What about a song like "Please Dont Stop the Music" by Rihanna
