I was just wondering. Are there any modern American patriotic songs? I know there is like Battle of the Hymn and American the Beautiful, but the most recent song is Lee Greenwoods - God Bless the USA, and that's not really that upbeat and funky. Are their any modern American patriotic songs that are upbeat and energetic like the Telstra one?

Gotta love that song!! I remember learning in school that Ben Franklin wanted the wild turkey as our national bird, and as I'm watching that video, I was thinking how stupid that would look with a wild turkey there instead of an eagle!!
