political music

i know a lot of good political songs, but does anyone know of a cool remix/reworking/cover of a traditional political song, like the star-spangled banner or america the beautiful, or whatever?
 
 something uptempo, with drum machines maybe?
 
 just wondering. cheers.

I think Whitney Houston has a version of either The Star Spangled Banner or America the Beautiful out there.  If it's on a single, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a remix.

there's always marvin gaye's version of the star spangled banner from the 1982(?) nba all-star game.  i also like the version by the red house painters, but a slow, nearly 3 minute version probably isn't what you are looking for.   :)
 
 as for america the beautiful, you begin and end with ray charles' version. . .no version can compare with that.

Maybe you should look for British political songs.  They'll dance to anything over there.

thanks, people. i'm looking for something with a beat to it. to play my cards: my improv troupe is doing an election show and we need something rocking, but thematic, to come on stage to. (my suggestion - sleater kinney's "step aside" - was rejected.)
 
 (fyi, the show should be awesome. you'll start to see posters around town... http://www.dcwit.com/shows/potus.htm )
 
 anything? some dj had to have done something with a traditional marching tune, right?

Star Spangled Banner by Hendrix....woodstock I think.  Doesn't have much of a beat though.
