Posted on 09/29/2012 10:29:05 AM PDT by ozaukeemom
I received this link in an email and wanted to share it with other patriots. This version of the national anthem is pretty amazing, in my opinion.
I would love to see them perform at President Romney's inauguration.
In addition, this link is to more information on the leader of the band.
If I did this incorrectly, please remove.

And yes it’s on my MP3 player (sorry don’t have an iPod)
The only thing to make it better would be to have all the official verses.
I do not post threads much so did it wrong. The word “email” in the link. I did a duh. Thank you for putting it as a link!
There is one and only one version of the Star Spangled Banner.
Support Patriotic Musicans!!
(And no, I'm not in any way connected to the band. I'm just a fan.)
This is pretentious crap IMO.
The National Anthem was in there somewhere among the utter crap. The only worst rendition was done by Roseann Barr.
Sorry if you did not care for it. I enjoyed it and perhaps some others will, as well. Isn’t it great we can have different opinions? Thanks for posting yours.
I just recently learned how so I was showing off to keep in practice. Now to watch football.
Fantastic. I truly enjoyed this and bought the MP3. It’s great to see young people express their patriotism as these young men are doing.
I enjoyed that. I appreciate patriotism in whatever form it’s expressed.
Very good. 2nd verse by a tea party member.
I’m a very old grandma who does not care for rock music, but I thought it was very good and very creative. Asked son to make me a copy.
Just another blog-pimp raid ...
Conning people into artificially ‘inflating’ the band’s ‘hit count’ is NOT ‘patriotic’, NOT entirely ‘honest’ and generally classless.
Who wants to be ‘Rick-rolled’ by a no-talent ‘rock’ rendition of the National Anthem.
Not I, sez he ...
One Man’s Opinion
Excuse me? I am not a blog pimp. I received this in an email and shared it. I thought it was a nice performance.
I would not try to con anyone into anything. I am sorry you think I am classless. I will know better than to bother posting anything more, I guess.
My apologies for whatever it is I did that was so inappropriate.
These naysayers are curmudgeons with no taste.
If you like this, also check out The Voters song “Blame it on Bush” from their cd Electile Dysfunction. New here so don’t know how to link it. It’s on youtube.
IMONSHO: It matters NOT if it’s your own blog or someone else’s — the mechanics are effectively the same. Thus the label ...
I am often bemused when some Freeper sends out a call like ‘Here’s a Poll that needs Freeping; let’s all pile on !’ I find that fundamentally flawed and inappropriate behavior. The results are predictable and utterly irrelevant.
In this instance, the ONLY reason the site you linked to seems to exist is to garner ‘synthetic hits’ in an attempt to artificially inflate the perceived ‘importance’ of the band.
It would have more ‘honest’ if you had mentioned this, up front, in your solicitation. Your NOT doing so was a large component in my original complaint.
Now, you’re perfectly free to post whatever you’d like, subject only to moderation by the Site’s Administration. My comments were NOT intended to ‘suppress’ your participation; merely to express how I perceived the merits of this particular posting.
One Man’s Opinion
I did not post in order to garner hits for the site. I linked to the place that I had seen the video. I was not “soliciting” hits; I did not even think of that. So, calling me dishonest because I did not announce such a thing is uncalled for.
The entire point of this thread was to share something I thought was interesting and patriotic. There was no hidden agenda, as you seem to believe. The fact that you pinged humblegunner tells me all I need to know about yours.
I will not post another thread involving a link to anything. I do not need to be accused of manipulating others. So, your tactics worked.
To everyone; this was intended as a bit of patriotic entertainment, not a hit generator.
