July 4th playlist: Not your usual 15 songs for America

Unless you’re a country musician or a southern rock band or John Philip Sousa, you aren’t exactly in the business of making patriotic music. Have you ever heard a pro-America hip-hop song or punk song? As it turns out, the songs we’ve compiled for July 4th happen to be a bit more critical than “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

You’ve heard all the Springsteen, Chesney and Guthrie songs about America anyways. So we put together 15 non-traditional July 4th tracks for your enjoyment with Wu-Tang Clan, Elliott Smith, Rage Against the Machine and more.

Listen to the whole July 4th playlist below or on Spotify.
