Default National Anthems at Sporting events.

Instituted during the war, for national pride, do they have their place anymore??

The anthems need to go the way of the Lord's Prayer.

ya, I know, I mean, sometimes its ok, like the one in the allstar, with the guitar and sax, but Im sure people just get tired after hearing it 271431741293 times. And besides, playing it before every game doesnt make you more patriotic...

It's from two years ago, bad performance, bad vocals...that song has a lot of layering on the recorded version too, so IMO live it always sounds so much different and in this instance not in a good way.

I forgot it was on there until now.
