If you find “Fight the Power” more patriotic than “God Bless the U.S.A.,” if you think it’s one thing to love America but it’s another to act like its obsessive boyfriend, then we have an Independence Day playlist for you. We have easy barbecue jams like “Party in the U.S.A.” and “Young Americans,” and songs that dig deeper like “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” and “Killing in the Name.” You can play it on Spotify, Apple Music, or YouTube.
If you copy this to another music streaming service, leave a link to share! Enjoy your Independence Day, and we hope you don’t have to overhear that one song that tried to use 9/11 to justify the Iraq War!
