Kids in America – Kim Wilde
Nothing like a good throwback and an ode to the freedom of childhood and growing up. Keep the intensity up!
American Girl – Tom Petty
It’s not a USA-themed playlist without a little bit of Petty, of course. This is perfect song to listen to while kicking back with a drink on the 4th and while kicking some butt at the gym beforehand.
We Didn’t Start the Fire – Billy Joel
Brush up on your American history with Billy Joel’s classic track. Bonus: Practice the lyrics during your workout and wow your friends with your knowledge of 20th century history on the big day.
Surfin’ in the USA – Beach Boys
Channel some beach vibes at the gym while working on your killer beach bod! There is nothing more classic than the Beach Boys.
Paul Revere – Beastie Boys
This Beastie Boys’ track is as entertaining as the beats are motivating. Even though the lyrics tell a fictional story, the nod to Paul Revere is certainly a patriotic move. Keep up the hard work! You’re almost done with your workout.
Homecoming (feat. Chris Martin) [Explicit] – Kanye West
Fun fact – this song is about Kanye’s hometown, Chicago, also fondly known as “Chi-Town.” Finish your workout strong during this song! The cool down is right around the corner.
American Boy (feat. Kanye West) – Estelle
Let your BPM lower while cooling down to Estelle and Kanye’s chill beats. We know that Estelle is technically British, but this song is about her infatuation with an American boy, who she was dating while writing the track.
I Love the USA – Weezer
Stretch out to classic American band, Weezer’s, patriotic track, fresh off their latest album. Fun fact: they were commissioned by Apple and NASA to write this song and commemorate the spacecraft, Juno’s, mission to Jupiter on the 4th of July last year.
