“We were on tour abroad, and it got me thinking a lot about America, which lead to me write ‘I Love The U.S.A,’” frontman Rivers Cuomo explained on Facebook. “When Apple and NASA asked us to be involved with Juno’s historic landing on July 4th, this song seemed like the perfect fit.”


“I Love The U.S.A” is available as a digital download through iTunes. Cuomo has also posted a mildly baffling annotated copy of the lyrics to Genius.
