Born in the USA by the Boss. American Girl or just the whole album Full Moon Fever by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers- my dad had/has this on tape and we listened to it on a roadtrip to New Orleans when I was like 8. Great memories.
Born in the USA (the song) isn't a celebration of America at all.

I'm proud of where I come from but I also recognize that it could be a lot better and there is def a lot of injustice. If you are talking of the "love it or leave it" types I hate those people.
