I think it takes a supremely good singer to sing my country's national anthem. I hate it when singers at some sporting event butcher it beyond recognition.

France is crap. Mainly because it's French. Flower of Scotland is shite, I'll give to it the Welsh though, they know how to sing! God Save the Queen is also turd and the US dirge too. German one = horrible images of Vettel and Schumacher on the top step of the podium, disgusting, disgusting.

Russian followed by French. Can't understand how French wasn't a poll choice.

Russian & the USA.

And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there...wow.

However in the wrong hands these anthems could be used and have been used to inspire jingoistic bullshit.

I hear the American one so often (especially at these Olympic games) that it loses some of its luster.

None. Sentimental, patriotic drivel the lot of them.

If I heard some of these tunes in other contexts, I might have liked them, but the fact that they're 'national anthems' spoils every bit of the listening pleasure to me, I'm afraid. As a devout anti-patriot I generally find the concept of national anthems to be abhorrent.
