Well, I had a pretty hard time coming up with patriotic songs, but this one is very powerful, both musically and lyrically :
Metallica - Don't Tread On Me
And you can't get any more patriotic than The Star Spangled Banner. Here are a few good rock-and-roll guitar versions:
Legendary Texas blues guitarist and singer Stevie Ray Vaughn...
(This appears to be recorded off someone's tv set, as it happened long ago, but you can still hear its uniqueness)
Ozzy Osbourne and Black Label Society guitarist and frontman Zakk Wylde has done a really good version as well...
And the one that started it all, groundbreaking guitarist Jimi Hendrix. This performance is from Woodstock....
I would have LOVED to have been around for that one. Doesn't it just give you chills?
