    This would be more appropriate for modern 'merica than hippieish songs about kindness, giving, sharing, or patriotism, since none of that seems to exist in the US anymore.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Thought I somehow doubt Maynard, Adam, Justin and Danny would let that happen.

    Dude, seriously, how has my Rick Derringer suggestion not been the top choice??? Elementary school would have been so much better if we had to sing Hulk Hogan's theme song every morning!

    So was our treatment of the native Americans and slavery, but it doesn't mean we have to glorify them in a national anthem. Just sayin'..............

    Thank you for comparing as equivelents the mass enslavement of a race of people and the massive killing and removing of another race of people to fighting a war for american independence. It provides wonderful insight into how seriously to take your comments.

    How about Motley Crue's 'Dr. Feelgood'?

    The War of 1812 wasn't about Independence, it was about the British pirating our merchant ships sent to give aid to Napoleon, and us saying **** you guys, we're going to kick your ass again, despite Washington telling us to stay the hell out of foreign engagements in his final address to the People.

    After thinking about congress and our politicians for a while, I've decided that Entrance of the Gladiators would make the most sense.

    Never suggested the SSB was about the Revolutionary War. I stated that the fact it was a song that references "war" doesn't exactly bother me since the notion of "war" in general doesn't bother me in relation to patriotism and our country seeing how our founding was able to take place DUE to war. So a song concerning War doesn't bother me as much as a song about say...Slavery or the treatement of native americans...when it comes to our national anthem because War, and patriotic imagery regarding War, is a positive thing in our countries history dating back to its very founding.

    My mistake, I thought you were saying the Star Spangled Banner was about the AR.
