There is a movement to replace our national anthem with a new one. A poll last week indicated that many Americans think that Bruce Springsteen would be the best choice to compose a new national anthem. Do we need a new one?

Gee, I wonder what I said so wrong to get a vote down? Is there someone out there that doesn't believe in our National Anthem and standing up when it is played? Do they remove their hat or just sit there? Just curious.
Pagesvoice - there are hubbers who vote by emotion as if HP q&a is a middle school slam book rather than a place for educational debate and discourse.
pagesvoice it looks like someone went through and voted all of us down. Don't take it personally. It may have even been someone that's not from the US so they may not realize how seriously we take our anthem.
Well, well, well...isn't that interesting?
There are people out there who will down vote any answer that sounds even mildly patriotic, as if to prove that patriots are idiots and their answers must be stupid.
To ThelmaC, Breathe2travel and KK Trainor...Thank you for the responses. I'm tired of people hiding behind anonymity when they vote things down without a reason. I thought if I called their action out they would be patriotic enough to say why?
I hadn't thought about the Canadian one. I like it too!
I agree with you and I would add that "artists" should not attempt to make this song "their own." It was written a certain way and that is part of our heritage and patriotism...leave it alone.
I completely agree mlcorey. Our national anthem should be played at all sporting events, our pledge of allegiance should be recited in all schools at least once a week, and our Constitution should be upheld by all who live under it.
I almost can't believe anyone would say that our national anthem was meaningless to them. And I have certainly never heard it sund to the drumbeat of war. How ridiculous.
