‘Born In The U.S.A.’

Born In The U.S.A., Bruce Springsteen

You could write a doctoral dissertation – or, at least a masters’ dissertation – on the multilayers of irony that are represented by this song, how it was entertainingly subverted by the Right, and how its history is in itself a humorous subversion of said song’s underlying message.  In fact, probably somebody already has; I only hope that it’s vaguely readable.  I get the impression that many aren’t.
