Oh, say can you see
By the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed
At the twilight's last gleaming
Whose broad stripes and bright stars
Thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched
Were so gallantly streaming
And the rocket's red glare,
The bombs bursting in air
Gave proof through the night
That our flag was still there
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave
Because we are the brave
Yes we are the brave
We'll fight tyranny
In the name of the free
We are the U.S. of A
For those unaware
That flag is still there
It's our future to save
This land of the brave
The U.S. of A
Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land, land of the free and the home of the brave
I like the band, and I think their hearts are in the right place, but this is a tad too much against the grain. The Anthem is meant to be sung in a manner that causes people to stop., and face the flag in a moment of reverence. In MR’s video one is not even certain the Anthem is playing.
I kinda like it.
Well said. I detest when singers try to put their own interpretation on the National Anthem.
I took their version as a song more than the National Anthem. I think they did a great job.
If you have not listened to the rest of their debut album you should.... these guys have a lot of guts, a lot of heart, and a heaping metric ton of patriotism..... and they ROCK!
