Google the lyrics for Rockin in the Free World,and you'll also see it's far from Patriotic.It talks about poverty and young mothers going out and getting high after her baby is asleep.

I think if you just Google American Patriotic songs,you'll see a lot of southern rock and mostly country songs will come up,especially songs from Toby Keith,Brooks & Dunn and Alabama

Springstein is not really patriotic either,so I'd give Born in the USA another listen also.

Steve B
And when someone is playing these songs at a gig, who really thinks about that? All people hear, for example is, Keep on rockin' in the free world! blah, blah, blah, Keep on rockin' in the free world! Same thing with Born in the USA.
