"Totally Patriotic" was a minga-style song by the pro-Imperial musical group The Emperor's New Clothes. The song was featured on the album of the same name, which was available in the galaxy by the time period between the years 0 ABY and 4 ABY. The song was approved by the Imperial Board of Culture, and it was considered one of the band's hits.
"Totally Patriotic" was later parodied by the anti-Imperial group Red Shift Limit, who also released a song called "Totally Patriotic" on their own album with the same name and gave the song a completely different meaning. Red Shift Limit's version was banned by the Imperial Board of Culture.
