I hate patriotism

Woody Guthrie.
Fourth of July is fast approaching, and with it, the in US there comes a wave  of customary patriotic playlists featuring rousing anthems, nostalgic rock 'n' roll favorites and all sorts of other songs with America in the title.
But many of the classic songs that casual listeners may assume to be patriotic are anything but, from misunderstood anti-war missives to singalong favorites masking darker meanings.
Yes, I have been singing one or two of those.
See the list of songs with meanings that go deeper than their patriotic or America-centric first impressions.

According to USA Today both President Trump and candidate Bernie Sanders used Neil Young's 1989 track during their respective presidential campaigns.
Perhaps both rabble-rousing candidates found something to agree with in Young's tale of George H. W. Bush-era disillusionment, as he rails against wealth inequality, consumerism and the general decline of American society.
The chorus' Keep on rockin' in the free world refrain may be a rah-rah catchphrase that was used at the time of its release to celebrate the collapse of communism, but Young's words are almost certainly intended to be taken ironically, making the song less patriotic than the anthem it may initially seem.  
I think that is not.
This is NOT ok with me…, 
Neil Young self tweeted Friday evening.
Canadian-American rock veteran Neil Young took to Twitter on Friday to blast U.S. President Donald Trump for using his song Rockin’ in the Free World at a 4th of July rally at Mount Rushmore.
Remember it is the voice of a tax-paying U.S. citizen who does not support you,
You are a disgrace to my country,
Neil Young posts open letter to Donald Trump on last February. It seems so Young was triggered about Trump’s consistent usage of his 1989 rock anthem Rockin’ in the Free World at a number of his campaign rallies. To Trump:
Your mindless destruction of our shared natural resources, our environment, and our relationships with friends around the world is unforgivable.
They say that only a month later being naturalized as an official U.S. citizen, Young, 74, went on a scathing rant defending his country against its Republican leader Trump.
