If you can dodge a wrench; you can dodge a ball.

Can we all agree though, that O Canada is an overrated anthem?

Nope, I think it’s the best.

Overrated? Maybe. It is a great one to sing along to which makes it a good one for sporting events. I would place it top 5 national anthems. 

I think the best is actually Russia's. It is just badass. I also like Italy's a lot, sounds like a great drinking song. 

I would place ours near the bottom and Britain's dead last.

I didn't say last, I said near. Britain's is the worst. Too slow and depressing. 

Ours is hard to sing, hard to sing to, has no chorus, and is often too slow. Musically it is a mess.

LOL.

I just don't think musically it is a good national anthem. Now, I would prefer God Bless America as the national anthem, as it checks all the boxes. It is better arranged, better lyrics, and easier to sing and sing to.

I agree with Ptown on this.....it's got a great finish, but the rest of the SSB is kind of blah.

And, let's face it, it's only a matter of time until the snowflakes get rid of the SSB for "glorifying war" and make God Bless America our national anthem (if they can figure out how to get rid of the parts about God).

You can change our national anthem to some nickelback song and it would still be #1 by default.

 

Also you are already behind on God Bless America.  https://www.npr.org/2019/04/22/715918211/kate-smiths-god-bless-america-dropped-by-two-major-sports-teams

A USA national anthem written by a Canadian might be number one for traitors but not in my damn house!!!!
