Thread: Messing with the nation Anthem

  1. #1

    Default Messing with the nation Anthem

    So people one of the most controversial things happening here is a debate concerning the national anthem...During New Years Eve time fire works will spurt and a disco version of the anthem will be played...

    what are your views? should an anthem be changed/remixed/heard to fit in with this "younger generation"?

    Im only 28 and i heard it and i think it sounds horrible its like messing with the flag....i seriously dont think it should be played!

    ps. Im not sure if this should go here or world events!

    and i cant delete this one sorry peoples

    I dont really think its a too good of an idea. I've heard that some old folks are really angry about the whole thing, but hey what can u do? It will probably just be a techno beat with the lyrics played a bit faster.

    I'm 21 and I believe it shouldn't be changed. Half the feeling you get from singing it comes from the sound. Before doing something like that they should have put it to a vote. I'm pretty sure it would loose but thats the right thing to do, even it it won.

    this is for Australia Right?

    if it is then I am totally against it...im 14 and ive heard it and thats no way to treat something that means so much to Australia...And they even put in an upbeat party version of Waltzing Matilda...Thats not even a part of our anthem!

    Eh, look what the Sex Pistols did to OUR national anthem.

    God save the queen
    The fascist regime
    They made you a moron
    Potential H-bomb

    God save the queen
    She aint no human being
    There is no future
    In England's dreaming

    Don't be told what you want
    Don't be told what you need
    There's no future no future
    No future for you

    God save the queen
    We mean it man
    We love our queen
    God saves

    God save the queen
    'Cos tourists are money
    Our figures head
    Is not what she seems

    Oh god save history
    God save your mad parade
    Oh lord god have mercy
    All crimes are paid

    When there's no future
    How can there be sin
    We're the flowers in the dustbin
    We're the poison in your human machine
    We're the future you're future

    God save the queen
    We mean it man
    We love our queen
    God saves

    God save the queen
    We mean it man
    And there is no future
    In England's dreaming

    No future no future
    No future for you
    No future no future
    No future for me

    No future no future
    No future for you
    No future no future
    No future for you
    No future no future for you

    I think we should keep our Anthem, but then I am a monarchist. Trying to destory our hertage to americanise ourselves is sad really, what your nation is should be teasured not sold off.

    If you're going to butcher your national anthem, why not add a giant penis to your flag?

    You should never mess around with your anthem. A national anthem represents your country, so if you want something crappy and new why not have Justin Timberlake sing it? Anthems should stay as they are.

    I support changing the tune to something a bit more noble than an old British drinking song.

    Radiohead - The National Anthem

    Everyone
    Everyone around here
    Everyone is so near
    It's holding on
    It's holding on

    Everyone
    Everyone is so near
    Everyone has got fear
    It's holding on
    It's holding on

    It's holding on
    It's holding on
    It's holding on


    someone explain those lyrics to me.

    ANYWAY. Australia's national anthem, right? Never heard it.
