Top 10 Songs for July 4 Weekend

Videos by OutKick

Perhaps you have to scale back on your annual July 4 gathering this weekend. Maybe you have to settle for grilling hot dogs instead of steak and ribs. And you might have to buy cheap beer for your guests.

All of this sucks, and we blame Joe Biden for all of it. However, you can make up for your rather lame get-together as long as you play good music, all of which is free.

So, whether you are hosting a party or drinking on the porch with your dog, here are the 10 best songs to play over July 4 weekend:

“We’re an American Band” — Grand Funk Railroad

“All Summer Long” — Kid Rock

“Living in America” — James Brown

“American Badass” — Kid Rock

“God Bless the USA” — Lee Greenwood

Smells Like Teen Spirit” — Nirvana

Okay, not a song about freedom. But nonetheless always worth playing at a party with fireworks.

“American Heart” — Faith Hill

“Freedom” – Kenny Chesney

“American Girl” — Tom Petty

“Back In The U.S.A..” — Linda Ronstadt

  1. Also American Woman. Not Pro America.
    I’ll take Toby Keith’s “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue”, Merle’s “Fighting Side of Me” or Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Red, White and Blue” over any of these.

  2. Springsteen is anti-American trash these days unfortunately. Gotta give him the boot. We can stick any of Dilligaf’s suggestions in there instead. And Lee Greenwood should probably be #1 regardless.

  3. I would have gone Zac Brown Chicken Fried too. Born in the USA is appropriate since it’s an indictment of our corrupt government, still applies today, even though Springsteen has now aligned himself with that big gvt, pro war machine.

  4. Sorry, but the original version of American Woman by (the ironically Canadian band The Guess Who) is much better than Lenny Kravitz’s version. And don’t even get me started on that left-wing nutcase Springsteen.
