The National Anthem Of Your Nightmares

By | 3 Comments

It's a pretty standard feature, the collection of the worst national anthem performances of all-time, and most sports and pop culture blogs usually start running them out around Super Bowl time, unless there's a surprise craptacular performance at an all-star game, NASCAR race, or drunken 4th of July party.

You might be one of these people that thinks "<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Star-Spangled_Banner">The Star-Spangled Banner</a>" is an inferior song to, say, "America The Beautiful" or even "<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8iKgIOwV2c">Whole Lotta Rosie</a>," but that wouldn't entitle you to re-invent the lyrics on the fly.
