God Save The Queen is dreary, bleak and awful. We should have Rule Britannia instead.


Yep. It might be good again when it's God Save The King though because Kings are objectively better than Queens.

Honestly God Save The Queen and The Star-Spangled Banner are two of the worst national anthems of all time.

The best ones go to Italy and Russia.

I like Daniel Tosh's idea of having a 30 minute long anthem with a 7 minute guitar solo but other than that the US's anthem is okay.

+yes
Rule Britania is amazing.

I'm a fan of my national anthem, just not the people who sing it.

I like the US's. I value the situation in which it was written, all the reasons and meanings behind that moment, and my sense of pride in my country.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

But seriously, our national anthem should be We Will Rock You.

How could I not?


Cuz it's played on real instruments.


OT: Not really.

This thread is now about the coolest national anthems. Mongolia has the best anthem of all time. Instead of being some bombastic march like every other anthem, it focuses more on a great, soothing melody that's actually inspired by their traditional music.

I really dislike the Star Spangled Banner as a song. There are definitely some occasions when someone knocks it out of the park and sends shivers down everyone's spine, but on the most part it's a song with absolutely no flow to it and the lyrics are dumb. We get it, the flag's cool and stuff, how about an anthem that actually says something about the country and doesn't just talk about how resilient the flag is?

That said, you can't beat it when the crowd gets into it like only my hockey team's fans do

It's hard to find a good video example, either the quality is ass or the crowd noise gets turned down by the network the game's on. But trust me, being there is an absolutely deafening and bone-chilling experience

Musically the American anthem is too difficult to sing for most people and the lyrics are a jumbled mess. Not one of the better anthems, imo. People just get super psyched by hearing an ascending sequence of notes with the lyrics "land of the free and the home of the brave" attached.

The US national anthem is awesome when performed properly.
So about 10% of the time.

In elementary school they played grand ol' flag after the pledge of allegiance. It was like "justice for all.... (Join the air force, join the air force)... you're a grand ol' flaaag"

but yeah that one is better than the anthem.

I'm not a fan of my national anthem (Canada). Especially the mixed English/French version *shudder*
