replacement for the national anthem shortlist

Star Spangled Banner sucks, get a new anthem America|

this idea came to me as I was falling asleep|

open to suggestions, feel free to comment

Wilco - Jesus, Etc.
my 1st pick

I just think it's a classic that effectively copes with the rough outlook America's had post 9/11 and manages to comes out of it with a sense of hope, also lyrically right off the bat you got Jesus namedropped in the first verse so already it appeals to the sect of conservative Christians in America that don't actually read the Bible but still want it plastered everywhere (I don't read much of it either but sheeesh, y'know).

Also Wilco's from my home city so I have every right to be biased towards them (Fun fact: I used to live two blocks away from where Jeff Tweedy lives in Old Irving Park, only found out how close I actually was like a few months ago)
Deftones - Minerva
my 2nd pick

I just feel like this would go off way harder as an opener for sports games than the current anthem does, not many other reasons I chose this, just don't let Fergie sing this and we should be good.

AANNDD GGOODD BLESS YOU ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
FFFOOORR THE SONG YOU SANGGGGGGGG
Charli XCX - how i'm feeling now
87

this is the honorable mention, first pick was "White Is Right" from Pink Season - Pink Guy (just chose this cause it's the only one under single and it's easier)

We can't forget the classic: American Idiot!

like ok but can you imagine watching sports on tv and suddenly hearing "THE ONLY GIIRRRRL I EVER LOOOOOOOOVVVED"
2mo
I suppose if we’re submitting things, I’d have to go with Immaterial by SOPHIE. Goes harder than the pledge for sure.
2mo
@MusicaMeretrix omg I remembered that happening but I forgot what the song was tysm

“Kream” by Iggy Azalea, only because of that one baseball game where it was played instead of the actual national anthem. https://twitter.com/tropicsass/status/1148029632698114050
