By Gil Kaufman and John Walker

America: Love it or… eat 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes. It is the Fourth of July, after all, so while you’ll try to avoid getting salmonella from potato salad that’s been sitting out all day and make sure your little cousin doesn’t blow his fingers off with an M-80, we have more patriotic things in mind, like compiling the 17 most ’America F–k Yeah!’ moments of the year so far.

It was a tough job, but someone had to do it.

1. U.S. Goalie Tim Howard
Sure, they lost a heartbreaker to Belgium on Tuesday, but Howard was a beast. USA! USA!


2. And For A Minute We All Loved Soccer
But then, you know, we were over it.

3. “Rich Kids Of Beverly Hills”
The reality series’ entire existence.

4. Nirvana’s Girl Power Rock Hall Induction
Lorde, Kim Gordon, St. Vincent and Joan Jett destroyed it.

5. Iggy Azalea’s Homage To American Cinema
What’s more downhome, salt-of-the-earth American than “Fancy,” a music video made by an Australian rapper and a British singer inspired by a Hollywood studio film that’s based on a 19th-century English novel? Wait.

6. Apple Spends 3 Billie On Beats
What’s more American than Apple dropping $3 billion to acquire Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre’s headphone company? From N.W.A to 1 Infinite Loop Way.

7. “Obvious Child,” Obviously
The “rom-com with the abortion in it” that’s so much more than that. Get it, Jenny Slate, get all that success.
