Sunday earworm: Network's 'Back in America'

This week's Stuck in the '80s podcast honors the top 5 patriotic songs in the '80s. And by far, the most interesting song we found was this tune, Back in America, by a band called Network. The song is Back in America and it was featured during the closing credits of National Lampoon's European Vacation in 1985.

It has all the thrills and overindulgences of a mid-'80s rocker, but sadly has gone underappreciated since the movie. The band too is long gone, but at least Clark, Rusty and the rest of the Griswold clan live on forever on DVD.
