Lana del Rey: your new national anthem.

What better way to celebrate the nation's birthday than taking a day off. Or, as Homer Simpson would agree, "Celebrate your country's independence by blowing up a small part of it" (we mean fireworks, duh). You've probably earned a day off, so have a beer or five, eat some barbecue, and watch some fireworks. You have a long day of partying ahead of you, necessitating a good playlist. There are some decent 4th of July/American pride songs out there, but here are the five that irk us the most -- and chances are you'll hear a few of them if you go out to celebrate today.


Lana Del Rey -- National Anthem
While it's cool to see Lana impersonate Marilyn Monroe and Jackie O, watching A$AP Rocky get his brains blown out a la JFK may ruffle some feathers. Plus, if "Video Games" becomes our new national anthem, we're a little terrified.


Bruce Springsteen -- Born in the U.S.A.
There's usually no such thing as too much Springsteen. In fact, I'd applaud you for playing the album Born in the U.S.A. in its entirety. The title track is a great song, but so is the rest of the album. Rather than listening to this as background music during the televised Boston fireworks, how about lighting some sparklers and dancing like an idiot to "No Surrender" and "Dancing in the Dark"?
