I know that the goal is for good, to bond ppl and make proud but its not my thing, i think a few lines and a flag is ok but a full song and everyone putting their hands on their heart, a little Fascist in my eyes.
but the idea is great

Obviously for anybody the Best National Anthem would be their Home Country. Choosing anybody Elses is something i cannot understand.

The top 5 anthems in the world in no particular order are the South African, Uruguayan, Mexican, Russian and Welsh ones in my opinion. They are all incredibly inspiring and rousing tunes.

I remember some people saying that Group A of the 2010 World Cup, with Uruguay, México, South Africa and France, was the best ever group for the quality of national anthems.

Re: The Best National Anthem...?

the Italian one is quite nice for what concerns the musical aspect. better not read the lyrics at all..

one of my favourites is the Volkshymne, of course! Music by Joseph Haydn!



Laßt uns fest zusammenhalten,
in der Eintracht liegt die Macht;
Mit vereinter Kräfte Walten
Wird das Schwere leicht vollbracht,
Laßt uns Eins durch Brüderbande
gleichem Ziel entgegengehn

Re: The Best National Anthem...?

I don't like "God Save the Queen" at all. England/Britain would be much better off with "Jerusalem" or "Land of Hope and Glory"

I like the German and French anthems, but my favourite is probably "Land of My Fathers" from Wales

We have a rubbish national anthem. Don't enjoy it at all. It's just so dreary.

Big fan of the Irish one.

The best one: Uruguay, hands down. There's no competition there.




Worst: Montenegro. That must be the darkest and most terrifying national anthem I have ever heard. It reminded me of a horror movie.. kinda like Dracula or something.

most of anthems are peaceful, not the French one at all! It is a "warrior anthem".

Like the God Save the Queen as much.

Here is the French anthem (with English lyrics ) :
