Happy Birthday, America [50 Pics]

D.I.Y. 'Zines
Before the Internet, this is how go-getters blogged.


One World Trade Center
A big "F*ck You" to the dicks that were responsible for 9/11.


Ian MacKaye
Indie punk icon, still sticking to his guns and has never wavered from his beliefs.



David Lynch
The most inventive director America's got. Subtle genius.



Vans
The only shoe that defines youth--straight outta Anaheim, 1966. Spans ever genre.



Twinkies
Born in 1930 by Chicago's James Dewar. A staple in every kid's diet at one time or another.



Billy Murray
There are no words to describe Bill's awesomeness. He could start a religion and we'd all join.


The Beastie Boys & Run-DMC
Together forever.


Everyone Serving With Kids Back Home
Unless you've done it, you'll never know how bad it sucks.


Sarah Silverman
Jerry Lewis is a dick for saying there aren't any funny chicks.


Navy SEALs
Responsible for killing Osama Bin Laden. Nice.


Allison Stokke, Pole Vaulter
Yes, still.


The Microwave Oven
Introduced to the public in 1947, snacking was never the same again.


Michael Jordan
The greatest athlete ever. Lebron James will never even get close.


John Hughes
The man who perfected the angsty teen movie genre. No adult got it like John.


In-N-Out Burger
Making other fast food taste like fast food since 1948.



The Fender Thinline Guitar
The Gibson Les Paul is fine, but Fender's tone is the aural equivalent of a cooing baby angel.



Two-Buck Chuck
Yeah, a bottle of Charles Shaw is about $3.50 now, but you won't find a tastier wine in California.



The Guys Who Maintain New York's Skyscrapers
What, you're gonna do it?



Captain Chesley Burnett "Sully" Sullenberger
Sky ninja.



The Electromechanical Vibrator, 1902
Amirite, ladies?



Madonna (1983 to 1992 Only)
Understand how boring the Billboard charts were before her first LP.



The Remote Control
Zenith introduced the first remote in 1950, it was called "Lazy Bones." Nuff said.


Andy Warhol
Made you look at art in a completely different way.



Dennis Hopper
Specifically his photography of 1960s Americana. The modern Norman Rockwell.



TiVo
Introduced to the world in '99 by Jim Barton and Mike Ramsay. I bet they hated commercials as much as I did.



Every Protestor In The 1969 Stonewall Riots
Willing to get their faces bashed in for love.


The Ford Mustang Fastback
Greatest muscle car ever made.


Bettie Page
Single-handedly introduced America to light bondage.



The Roller Derby
Formed in Chicago around 1935. Just go to a match and you'll see what I mean.



Levi's 501 Jeans
Born in the 1890s in San Francisco. They've trancended everything since.



Slaughterhouse-Five
Kurt Vonnegut writes his greatest piece of work in 1969. Flawless.



Charles Bronson
Yeah, Clint Eastwood is a bad ass, but Bronson was just a gritty vigilante.



Bill Clinton
If America is a lady, Bill's two terms was its eight-year orgasm.



The Zippo Lighter
If you're gonna smoke to look cool, don't half-ass it with a Bic. You go Zippo.



Clerks By Kevin Smith
Love it or hate it (or him), but Smith turned the indie movie industry on its ass with this one.



Prom Night
When every girl is a princess and every guy hopes to get into that princess' chiffon gown.


Chicago Deep Dish Pizza
Pizza might have been invented elsewhere, but Chicago perfected it in 1943.



Bose Noise-Cancelling Headphones
You ever take a coast-to-coast flight without a pair?



George Costanza
Finally, a slacker that the rest of us slackers could look up to.



Happy Hour
You bet your sweet ass Happy Hour started in America. I'd be dead without this invention.



The Beer Bong
No backyard kegger is complete without one. Feels so good when it hits the lips.



Iggy Pop
The Godfather of Punk. Bare-bones rock, no filter. A dirty by-product of Detroit.



Charles and Ray Eames
Anything and everything this husband and wife design team did was f*cking perfection. That is all.



Duct Tape
Johnson & Johnson developed it in 1942 for use in World War II. And now, this...



Kate Upton
The anti-waif.



Stan Lee
Reimagined a world with technicolor superheroes. He's finally considered a god.



The Ramones
If America has a house band, it's The Ramones. Simple, hard, poppy, beautiful.



Dave Grohl
The most awesome person in rock and roll. The guy you wanna share a beer with.

Beer bong is just because they haven't discovered the Yard Glass. Microwave invented in the UK. Bill Clinton couldn`t even smoke a joint properly. Michael Jordan is who?. Sarah Silverman is who?. McDonald is poo and same with them hamburgers and that disgusting pizza. THE NAVY SEALS ARE GAY AND PISS WEAK,couldn`t even capture Bin Laden alive, wouldn`t parading him in chains been a better message to his cronies than making him a martyr.
