The Star-Spangled Banner

starspangled banner

As an American, I supposed I feel some affinity for this, but as a semi-professional Stuff Rater, I have to tell you, it’s not very good. It’s hard to sing, the part everybody knows is about a battle we lost where the British didn’t quite manage to burn down everything, and the third verse is about how ungrateful slaves are. It’d be nice if everyone just realized that “O Canada” and “America” have the same number or syllables and we could just steal that national anthem. 1.9/5
