If you don’t play Born in the USA as fireworks are like exploding into the sky then you’re not following the Constitution and you’re breaking a federal law. Happy 4th though. :)
PRETTY SURE THE CONSTITUTION DOESN’T ENCOURAGE THE MISINTERPRETING OF VERY STRAIGHTFORWARD SONGS THAT ARE CLEARLY NOT BLATANTLY PATRIOTIC
In which tumblr explains to you that Born in the USA is NOT a patriotic song to listen to on the 4th of July.

“So I went to the rectory and knocked on the door. ‘Hi, Father Ray, I’m Mr. Springsteen’s son. I got this problem. My father thinks I should be a lawyer, and my mother, she wants me to be an author. But I got this guitar.’ Father Ray says, ‘This is too big a deal for me. You gotta talk to God,’ who I didn’t know too well at the time. ‘Tell him about the lawyer and the author,’ he says, ‘but don’t say nothin’ about that guitar.’ Well I didn’t know how to find God, so I went to Clarence’s house.” - Bruce Springsteen.
The biggest man I’ve ever seen. It’s been two years and I still miss you every single day. Thank you Big Man for the music, the heart, the soul, the joy you’ve brought to my life, the memories…that smile, that magnificent and powerful sound nobody but you could create. I’m so blessed to have been able to witness your brilliance. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
So, Big Kahuna, I’m sending love to the stars today. I love you, C.
Today, we remember the Big Man.
Clarence doesn’t leave the E Street Band when he dies. He leaves when we die.
