    This is interesting. I found a video of the original version of the Star Spangled Banner. The drinking song was known as To Anacreon in Heaven. Here it is.



    Here are the lyrics:
    SOA Lyrics - "To Anacreon in Heaven"

    So why is it a bad thing that the tune for The Star Spangled Banner was based on a drinking song?

    As I'm getting the impression that some think so...



    Personally, I think that just means it's more epic.

    It means Kid Rock or Vanilla Ice could have sampled it and wrote new lyrics.

    Before there was Vanilla Ice, there was Francis Scott Key.

    I like the Star Spangled Banner and do not think it should be changed. Regardless of what we pick someone is going to be offended or not happy.

    The goal should be making sure everyone is offended and unhappy. Thus, I nominate Oh Canada as the new US national anthem.

    We could just take the pieces from each of the songs in the poll and come up with "God **** the Spangled and Beautiful America, Yeah!"

    You'll piss off the extreme secularists because it mentions God.
    You'll piss off the far right religious conservatives because God is ****ing America.
    You'll piss off the far left hippies who hate America because America is referred to as beautiful in the title.
    And yelling "yeah" obnoxiously should piss off anyone that's rational

    Have your ever tried? You could shoot them in the leg and hear "I am so surry my lower extremity got in the way of yer bullet." They don't get pissed off, they just hold it in and get revenge by sending us terrible artists.

    I think one of two options from S.O.D. would be good candidates and could reinforce some negative stereotypes at the same time:
