There's always been talk about changing our national anthem, and on today's most patriotic day I think it is a good day to discuss.  Some people favor changing the anthem to America the Beautiful, as it represents more of what we love about our country, rather than a forgotten battle in a war nobody really talks about anymore.  Also, so many people mess up the national anthem, and it is a difficult song for normal (aka non singers) to sing.  I for one would definitely be open to changing our national anthem, especially to America the Beautiful.  It says it all the in the title of the song.

I'll assume that 'your country' refers to Sweden. 
 
Why is Sweden's national anthem 'America the Beautiful'? Seems silly.

I don't care if they change it, so long as it's for the right reasons. If they start censoring so some ragheads and overly-sensitive douchebags don't get offended, then fuck them.

I'm not American, but I find it funny when the umpteenth singer messes up your anthem at another sports event.

I think those people should be deported. Christina Aguilera serves no purpose here.

Look on the bright side. The American national anthem is a million times better than the British national anthem. God Save the Queen is the most boring, downbeat load of crap ever.

I think a good anthem for America would be one of those rap songs where the singer sings about how many bitches he has and how many people he has killed, but of course change it so that America is what is being sung about instead of the rapper and instead of dissing other rappers you talk shit about other countries.

like "Yo Egypt, you got nothing on us, we buy your bitches like we buy any other stuff, then we take your oil and piss in your drinks because we are America you motherfucking Sphinx. We got our own Sphinx and pyramids too, in Las Vegas, Nevada, you might have heard it's cool." I don't know I can't write rap lyrics, but you get the point. Those rappers embody the spirit of America pretty well. Take all the stuff you can and fuck up as many others as you possibly can in the process.

Please don't take this too seriously.

No way! You guys have an awesome national anthem about the importance of being American even when everything is on fire/exploding. The Canadian national anthem is really lame by comparison. You guys have it good.

In Canada, some people tried to change a line in our anthem that referenced "sons" because it ignores women. That was silly. To be honest, I think the American Anthem is way cooler than the Canadian one; you guys shouldn't change it.

There was something similar in Sweden where people talked about changing the line "Yes, I want to live, I want to die in The Nordic" to "Yes, I want to live, I want to die in Sweden" to make it more specific but nothing came of it.

Also, I think the American National Anthem sucks (no disrespect) so I'm all for you guys changing it. Won't happen though.

Even though only half of this site's demographic are from the USA you are still ignorant enough to post that topic title. Dear me.

Sort of. I just get pissed that Islam is the only religion that can't take a fucking joke without having to kill people over it.

I like having a drinking song as our national anthem. If we changed it, though, I'd prefer George Washington (posted already). 'Cause we'll kick you apart, just like George.

That's what happens when you hire John Williams to score your National Anthem.  
 
I call dips on the Indiana Jones theme for Canada. America you can have the Superman theme. And China gets The Imperial March. Seems appropriate.

It shouldn't be changed since it reminds people that America was born out of violence; explains a lot about america really.

Okay guys, serious-post time. This should be the new one.

The lyrics are not worksafe, mind you, but even I stand up and hold my hand over my heart to this, and I'm a commie socialist heathen European.

Even the numb-nutted dipshits in the Westborough Baptist Church know how to protest something they don't like in a peaceful manner. I've heard the "IT'S ONLY LIKE 2 MUSLIMS OUT OF A GAJILLION" mantra so many god damn times and I'm sick of it. They take their bullshit religion way too seriously, just look at that "Draw Mohammad" contest. People were getting death threats and Facebook even had to take shit off of their website as a result of their bullying. Fuck them, fuck their fake prophet, and fuck the overly-sensitive media for even putting up with it. I'm not ignorant, I just wanna see every religion get ripped on equally.

France' anthem is about killing Germans and wading through their blood and those two countries are pretty tight now.
So I guess the one about your old war is ok, too.

Nope, for the USA it's not been around that long. Here's some interesting details:

It was Robert Ripley who helped make "The Star-Spangled Banner" the official United States anthem. Congress had repeatedly refused to recognize it as such.

On November 3, 1939, a Believe It or Not cartoon was published with this caption: AMERICA HAS NO NATIONAL ANTHEM. The United States-being a dry country-has been using without authorization-an old English drinking song ("To Anacreon in Heaven").

As a result of this cartoon more than 5 million petitions descended upon Congress. There were letters from all walks of life. Invariably they referred in shocked accents to the Believe It or Not cartoon. "Can this be true?"-they queried-"and why isn't something done about it?" Something was done. On March 3, 1931, Congress finally passed a resolution making "The Star-Spangled Banner" the official United States Anthem.

It is a shame that Borat's anthem has become more famous than the actual Kazakh national anthem, which fucking rocks. It's my  favourite national anthem, followed by PRC and Turkey
