About

“America: Fuck Yeah!” is a multi-purpose expression that can be used as an authentic display of strong approval or an ironic response to extreme or unwarranted patriotism toward the United States of America. The phrase rose to fame after being quoted in the 2004 action comedy film Team America: World Police.

Origin

The phrase originated in the satirical political action film Team America: World Police, written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, released on October 14th, 2004. The movie contained a song titled “America: Fuck Yeah!”, with lyrics portraying a jingoistic-style of American patriotism.


America, FUCK YEAH!
Coming again, to save the mother fucking day yeah,
America, FUCK YEAH!
Freedom is the only way yeah,
Terrorist your game is through cause now you have to answer too,
America, FUCK YEAH!
So lick my butt, and suck on my balls,
America, FUCK YEAH!
What you going to do when we come for you now,
it’s the dream that we all share; it’s the hope for tomorrow
