Megadeth Founder Dave Mustaine's Heavy Metal National Anthem will be featured in Dinesh D'Souza's upcoming 'America' movie.

Inside sources told Alex Wire that Megadeth founder Dave Mustaine's own heavy metal version (ala Jimi Hendrix rendition) of "The Star-Spangled Banner" will be featured in America, Dinesh D'Souza's follow-up to 2016: Obama's America.

Producers released the clip earlier this week while final editing touches are put on the film scheduled for release on July 2.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote in its article about the news that "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."
