[VIDEO] Dinesh DSouza’s Documentary ‘America’ to Feature Megadeth Founder’s Heavy Metal National Anthem Exclusive

For The Hollywood Reporter, Paul Bond writes: Megadeth co-founder Dave Mustaine is marking the 45th anniversary of Jimi Hendrix’s rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner with a heavy metal guitar version of his own that will appear in America, Dinesh D’Souza’s follow-up to 2016: Obama’s America.

“First off, no version of our national anthem is or will ever be better than the original…” 

Hendrix debuted his version of the song, also known as the U.S. national anthem, in the summer of 1969 at the now-historical Woodstock music festival, where it was panned by some for its irreverence and heralded by others as an instant classic. Still others assumed it was an anti-Vietnam War statement, but Hendrix simply saw it as patriotic. “We’re all Americans. … It was like, ‘Go America!’ ” he said a few weeks after Woodstock.

“…My hope for America is that we’ll become a nation they’d be proud of again and I tried to capture that with my guitar.”

Hendrix and Mustaine are both considered grand masters of the electric guitar. Mustaine, who also spent a few years with Metallica, was named No. 1 in the book 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Guitarists of All Time by Joel McIver, and Hendrix’s Star Spangled Banner was named the greatest guitar performance of all time by Guitar World magazine.

The presumably right-leaning film America follows D’Souza’s hit film 2016: Obama’s America, which is the second-highest-grossing political documentary in history after Michael Moore’s left-leaning Fahrenheit 9/11. Lionsgate is openingAmerica wide on July 2, nearly 10 years to the day after the same company openedFahrenheit 9/11.
