but it really is the worst song Iced Earth has ever made

I love this song. One of their best.  However I just watched the video for the first time, I'm sad that this song is actually connected with the biggest deceit in modern times 9/11...

so awful. complete redneck Toby Keith-styled revenge song.  Seriously, are people really down with this shallow, braindead attempt of patriotism? The void lyrics, the superficial message, the gay title (eagles crying? srsly 'Murika? Such ridiculous generalization. And there goes that typical american self-entitlement again). It may not be the worst song of all time (it's kinda hard to dethrone the final countdown, or anything done by bryan adams), but it really is the worst song Iced Earth has ever made

Good songs, lots of dickheads in the shoutbox.

Terrible lyrics. Not for their message. They're just terrible. Like he thought them out in a couple of minutes.

literally one of the worst songs I've ever heard in my entire life

I usually never troll with negative opinions in shoutboxes, but there are times I can't help it; this is probably the most insufferable metal song of all time. So bad it's awful.

I wish I could just pass this off as Jon Schaffer's misguided attempt at a Toby Keith cover... but, alas, it is not so... too bad.

i think its a good song by Iced Earth

I never heard a metal-song like this: it's the biggest piece of shit ever recorded. Only Nazi-Bands could be more jingoistic. The lyrics are full of thirst for revenge, better: vendetta. But the Iraq had no connection to 9/11. So in this song is no reason to warrant a war that cost the live of more than 100.000 civilians. It's disgusting to use the death of 3000 people to warrant a war with 100 times more dead civilians in a country that is not connected with the attacks. Argh, how I hate this song.

schmaltzy patriotic garbage, funny though
25 Aug 2009, 5:52am
Dudes... stop arguing... the song is perfect and it's one of the best of Iced Earth ;]
22 Aug 2009, 10:55pm
I think this song falls under the category: "so bad it's good". Can't help but liking it, despite the dim lyrics.
24 Jul 2009, 11:46am
Wait, I wiki'ed: Jingoism or Spread-Eagleism. Anyway, good song.

There is no such thing as "too patriotic". I assume you meant chauvinist?

Musically the song is just fine. Lyrically the song is trash. Jon's a little *too* patriotic. The whole album was riddled with this junk, down to the very title of the album. "The Glorious Burden" refers to, essentially, America's supposed position as top dog in the world, and the associated duties that involves. Unfortunately, a lot of the album suffered from this cheesy mentality. The other American History related songs were pretty great. This one... not so much.

This song is perfect for a round of Sonic the Hedgehog. Get those rings! http://roachwell.blogspot.com/

I think you take this song too seriously.
19 Nov 2008, 12:19pm
This is the worst song I have ever heard. I'd take an entire Maroon 5 album over this one again.
19 Nov 2008, 11:56am
ugh, I puked
19 Nov 2008, 11:55am
HOW CAN ONE SONG CAUSE THIS MUCH PAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
19 Nov 2008, 11:54am
HOLY FUCKING SHIT THIS SONG SUCKS ASS
29 Aug 2008, 3:06am
This is a great song... No offence to ripper, as his performance was great, but I'd kinda like to hear it with Matt behind the mic.
19 Aug 2008, 8:00pm
this song is cool
12 Jul 2008, 1:18am
Doesn't seem corny to me. I love it.

Nah, I like these lyrics, I only wish the whole album was a proper US war concept, not some mangled Greenface vs. The Red Baron crap. How could they, Why would they?
28 Jan 2008, 3:54pm
I don't agree with the lyrics really, but the song is cool. The acoustic version is good, too.
