Sad undereducate d misinformed ; - so many adjectives of/for the dumbing down of America. What a waste. The boss has explained his take on this song zillions of times! He wrote it - believe him!!
Ronald Reagan used it in one of his speeches and that was cool. It didn't make Bruce happy but we needed it when he wrote it. As many of you already stated, it was an anti war anthem and in my humble opinion it truly personifies one our country's greatest virtues. Decent! We are a great country blessed and created from it and without it we would no longer exist. And if this isn't American enough for you I dare you to write a better song about it!
From reading these comments, some of you need to read up on current events and are in need of a history lesson.
This song is about Vietnam.

I love this song
BORN IN THE USA
American made

Yes the lyrics can be considered anti-America n , but thats not the truth. Being American is subjective, and most people believe protesting authority is a true American trait, so that negates that argument.. Basically protest is 100% American (or Amurikan for my George Bush supporting friends) and that is the meaning of this song. Go BRUUUUCE!!!
This song is so patriotic for me.
I love this song.
Hi
One of my favorite Anthems!! Love BS!!
Exactly. This song is the opposite of american pride. Its about the draft for vietnam
while everybody here is going YEEH HAW MURICA! the lyrics are almost anti america, and how they were sending troops to kill for nothing in vietnam, and how they will get no help coming back.
God bless America! Proud to be American! One of the best countries in the world!
Indeed born in the USA god bless the USA and to the marines I say hurrra thank you men and women for serving our country we all appreciate your guys sacrifice god bless you all !!!!!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Know go be the can o whoopass at the field XD

I wish the people from North Korea understand why America is so beautiful. GOD BLESS AMERICA. Bruce keep it going.

We need Bruce Springsteen to be the next President of this Continent. Get rid off Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez and have more singers to delegate each Country from down in Chile to Northamerica .
Amen, Tennessee USA
They just don't make them like this anymore <3
Gotta love the rednecks who never read into the lyrics.
i'm born in the u.s.a. nyc.
I love this song! This Puerto Rican was born in the USA and I'm proud of it! God Bless You America!

Signature song of the Vietnam era

@squid45 Blasphemy!

Always mixed feelings about this song. Sometimes it makes me proud to hear someone questioning what we were doing when I seem to hear so much mindless support when the prospect of a war looms...then there is the part where (seemingly) the majority of Americans fixate on the refrain and the protest gets lost.

For a sec I thought Kid Rock sang this O_O
Geez, I was born in the U.S.A., but don't rigth a four minute song screaming 'Born in the U.S.A.' the whole time!
ehg2012
Jerry, I have no doubt about that. I was like that and then my dad, who loves the Boss, told me the real meaning and then I looked up the lyrics. Wonder why they don't have those up?
elizabeth, i hear ya. But i think just the title does it for people. But yes your right its words are less than desireable.
ehg2012
As much as I love this song, everyone does realize that it is an anti-war song right? This isn't a Go USA song, it's anti-Vietnam war... Just sayin...
GOD BLESS AMERICA
This is one of the best songs about our great country.
My country WRONG or RIGHT is NOT patriotism. Using your vote, your voice, and your participatio n to force our leaders to face our country's mistakes, learn from them, and put in place policies to prevent from letting them happen again is the highest form of patriotism.
This song is critical of the U.S. -- and rightly so. From Korea to Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan, our government has a 60+ year record of treating the people who put their lives on the line like dirt. Maybe if we paid our troops what they deserve, we wouldn't be so quick to put them in harm's way in the first place.
Its bearable...

This song is very critical of the US, listen to the lyrics.
His best song, IMO.
O'bahama has taken us back, back, back to the USSR !
latica

capone67
good times.....go t t a love it!
hey! so was i! strange....
This reminds me of Sam Hazard, when he sang it during class when we were in the eighth grade. Our classrooms were separated by a wall, and I had Ms. Vincent and he had Mrs. Dedarian, and the wall made the rooms two different rooms, and I heard him singing it while I was working on an assignment. I wonder what he's done with his life now that we're not in school anymore.
love this song
It's the greatest song ever
WENT TO SEE THE VA MAN-HE SAID SON YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND! That's what the VA man said about my disability, too. BORN IN THE USA! SCREWED BY THE USA!
