They did it in the gold medal women’s soccer final and during Michael Phelp’s trophy ceremony from what I’ve see.
I don’t know who’s in charge of this but Born In The USA is not a patriotic song and while it is not entirely anti-America it is an anti-government and anti-war (vietnam) song.
Born down in a dead man’s town
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
You end up like a dog that’s been beat too much
‘Til you spend half your life just covering up…
I got in a little hometown jam
And so they put a rifle in my hands
Sent me off to Vietnam
To go and kill the yellow man…
Come back home to the refinery
Hiring man says “Son if it was up to me”
I go down to see the V.A. man
He said “Son don’t you understand”
It’s a great song but I don’t really think it’s the kind of song that should be played at the Olympics. Especially to celebrate the victory of an American athelete.
