20 Rock + Metal Artists Showing Patriotism

Here are some rock and metal artists showing their patriotism.

On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed and the colonies officially separated from Great Britain, formally becoming the United States of America. We’ve come a long way since then, and we still have a lot of work to do, but the Fourth of July is always a good time to express your admiration for the red, white and blue.

Plenty of rock and metal artists have shown patriotism before, whether it was onstage, at an event or in some other kind of photo. Bands have performed for U.S. veterans and even traveled to military bases to perform for stationed troops (we salute you, Avenged Sevenfold), while others have simply used the American flag as a symbol during their live performances.

A lot has happened in the United States over the last few years that we probably thought we’d never see in our lifetimes. But at the end of the day, we still have music — and that’s something that’ll hopefully be able to bring people together for generations to come.
