Pretty much all US citizens secretly love “Oh Canada” – it’s probably the main reason we watch hockey. Not sure why, since our own national anthem is pretty distinctive and excellent; I think it’s just that nobody bawls out their anthem with the same enthusiasm Canadians do; it’s hard not to get swept up in it.

I hope you reserve a spot for defunct anthems. Some of the old Soviet anthems, Kazakhstan in particular, are absolutely epic. Russia was smart just to change the words but keep the old tune for their anthem. Also, nobody sings it anymore of course (except for maybe North Korea?), but the Internationale is a fantastic song.

I think he graded Dominican Republic to low, he didn’t even got a legitimate reason for the low grade. Dominican Republic is one of the prettiest anthem on the planet second only to France’s.

“… instead they all voted for this song, which nobody in the entire country really likes (which is not surprising since it is, shall we say, boring) but which they feel is more “anthemy.” This tells you a lot about Australia.”

Sounds like the likely attitude in more countries than Oz.
