Patriot man hates irony man

I had some overnight news program on in the background, and because nothing more important is going on in the world, there was a segment about some dork's list of the top ten songs to play during 4th of July celebrations. Springsteen's Born in the USA was number four on the list.

A different news show actually played that song during a montage of 4th of July firework displays. I kinda think Springsteen enunciates pretty well, but apparently no one in the news office was able to make out such lyrics as "sent me off to Vietnam, to go and kill the yellow man".

that song is probably the single most depressing song ever written. it's horrible that everyone thinks it's all patriotic and shit.
