Happy Fourth of July!

Whether you spend it quietly reflecting on our nation's history and those that have fought valiantly for our freedom

—or by seeing how many hotdogs you can shove into your mouth as you light off illegal fireworks like the pyromaniac that you secretly are, this playlist should do the trick.

It's a three hour trip from California to New York, down South, up to the Midwest, the Southwest, and everything in between—name-checking the cities, landmarks, and people that make America, AMERICA.

(Spoiler alert: people write a lot of damn songs about the South). 

I think it's a pretty solid playlist for when you're feeling patriotic, nostalgic, or just want to celebrate the 4th with what is arguably our greatest gift to the rest of the world: rock 'n roll.
