A petition has been started online for a change in the U.S. National Anthem. Specifically, the undersigned are calling for R Kelly's "Ignition (Remix)" to become the nation's new song. The full petition reads as follows:"We, the undersigned, would like the Obama administration to recognize the need for a new national anthem, one that even a decade after its creation, is still hot and fresh out the kitchen. America has changed since Francis Scott Key penned our current anthem in 1814. Since then, we have realized that after the show, it's the afterparty, and that after the party, it's the hotel lobby, and - perhaps most importantly - that 'round about four, you've got to clear the lobby, at which point it's strongly recommended that you take it to the room and freak somebody. President Obama: we ask you to recognize the evolution of this beautiful country and give us an anthem that better suits the glorious nation we have become."You can view the petition at the following location.If you have any suggestions for a new National Anthem, then let us know in the comments below.
