Please Don’t Add “Born In The U.S.A.” To Your Fourth of July Playlist This Year

It is the Fourth of July, a great day for Americans to grill hot dogs, watch a ballgame, and totally misuse Bruce Springsteen’s “Born In The U.S.A.” The 1984 song has been added to almost every Fourth of July playlist that I have ever listened to (particularly at fireworks displays). It should not be. “Born In The U.S.A.” has been around longer than I have been alive and yet it has been misrepresented as a patriotic song every Independence Day that I can remember.
