North American Scum: Songs for Independence Day

Here in America, we enjoy more personal freedoms than most countries. We can say what we want (provided we don't swear on network TV or radio), do what we want (provided we're not one of these people who wants to marry someone of the same sex), and go where we want (provided where we want to go isn't already owned by the government).

We here at Rocks Off love our country, and we want to show it via a playlist you can blast at your 4th of July cookout. We can think of no better way to celebrate the Declaration of Independence than with our favorite thing about America: rock and roll.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
