POLL: What's the Most Patriotic Song in America?

From the "The Star-Spangled Banner" to "Yankee Doodle" and "Born in the USA," we want to know what makes you think "America."

It seems like nearly every big fireworks show is synced up to music these days, and for good reason. A good song can elicit strong feelings and memories, and that includes patriotic tunes most often played around the Fourth of July and other national holidays.

But which song is the most patriotic? Is it our national anthem? God Bless America? Is it Bruce Springsteen's Born in the U.S.A.?

Vote in our poll and share a favorite Fourth of July memory!

Anybody who thinks Born in the USA is patriotic should take a second look at the lyrics.

I too wondered if anyone voting for Born in the USA had actually read the lyrics. Not really a patriotic song.

...but the cannon definitely reflects America's pro-gun mindset. Nothing is more patriotic that firing a weapon in this country.

I was at a Brewers' game a couple of years ago when a man swung his own hat at my 20 year old son during 'God Bless America' telling my son loudly "take off your hat." I told him that the song is NOT the national anthem and he was not required to. He replied "well it should be." I said, "until it is, keep your hands and opinions to yourself." I'm sure God would have been very proud of that man.

Just because a song ("Born in the USA") does not espouse a pro-war view, it does not disqualify itself as "patriotic." Does one have to be pro-war and anti-tax to be patriotic? Hardly.
