1. Born in the U.S. a by Bruce Springsteen
A classic '80s rock ballad perfect for the 4th of July! Springsteen originally wrote this song as an anti-Vietnam war song but the lyrics are simply incredible and very uplifting. I used to love to dance to this song as a kid and it can also serve as a great workout song. But more importantly, it makes flipping burgers and listening to your in-laws a little less boring. Don’t forget to include this one on your playlist of songs for your 4th of July barbecue.
