Nice rendition.

And pretty good game too. Always great to see the boys beat the bums.

Who sang it a Talledega today? I heard it was worse than Roseann Barr?

I think it was Robin Meade, (ex-?) anchor for CNN’s morning show. I didn’t see it but I saw some fairly scathing comments on Twitter.

It’s hard to beat that one. :-) But, there are many great renditions.

Back in 1985, sitting in my buddy’s beat-up GTO with ‘Trapped Under Ice’ cranked on the stereo, I would have never guessed Metallica would make it this far (although Lars is still a bit of a douche).

Good job, boys.

Dave Mustaine plays a pretty decent “Banner” as well.

That one gives me goosebumps every time! The high note the little one hits at 1:33 and the way they resolve the final chord at the end — oh man, that’s good stuff.

Definitely passable for a hard rock rendition.

I can’t wait to hear Gwar and death metal bands playing the National Anthem, followed by “I Will Always Love You”.

If they can get through this inning without a run scoring they’ll be doing better than yesterday when they went to the 7th 9-0.

I guess Detroit may be good for one thing after all, or, is it that Houston’s just that bad? Either way, Taps is right.

No thread on The Star Spangled Banner is complete without a link to Jimi's rendition of our national anthem. Here's the lesser known studio version:

They got a name for the winners in the world, and I want a name when I lose. They call Alabama the Crimson Tide. Call me Deacon Blues.

Wish I could have been there with you, but I was just a fifteen year old lad in Cali at the time, and couldn't find a way to get there.

I posted a link to his studio version at post 39.

To me, JH’s SSB was the quintessential comment of the 60’s. After the assassinations, the Viet Nam war, and landing on the moon, JH perhaps unwittingly, but perhaps not, captures the entire tumultuous decade in three minutes without saying a word.
