It is Independence Day today in the United States. It’s why there isn’t much to report from the official circles–most everyone has taken the day off for fireworks, barbecues, memorials, and fun.
It is a uniquely American holiday, but that doesn’t mean the American spirit hasn’t had its reverberations around the world and in Sonic fandom. Take Crush 40. Before Jun Senoue and Johnny Gioeli took on the name, they were Sons of Angels, and they produced a cover of The Star Spangled Banner for their 2000 album Thrill of the Feel.
So for today, we’ve relayed the anthem rock tribute to the red, white and blue for you below. If you’re celebrating, be sure to do so safely.
