Ok, I dont know much about music/songs but I really love some old classic pop/rock/jazz/ACM songs, like Hotel California, can't help falling in love with you, yesterday once more, Take Me Home Country Road, etc. I also like Ketty Perry, GaGa.... :)just curious. Which classic song can represent the American culture the most ?

I know it's pretty much a cliche to say this, but "Pink Houses" by John Mellencamp represents America just as well today as it did when it was released. Just pay attention to the lyrics and don't assume from the chorus that it's promoting jingoism.

I think for a song to represent American culture it needs to known by the public and embedded into popular culture and instantly known and recognizable. I honestly think that "Material Girl" by Madonna and "Livin' on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi would both best represent American culture today as they did in the 80s.

Sometimes I can't help but think that "Welcome to the Jungle" by GNR should be the National Anthem. Especially the "it gets worse here every day" part.
