A New Anthem for a Better America...

metallica2There are an awful lot of things wrong with America these days...

Bloated, soft, and an unearned sense of entitlement rotting out it’s foundation, the Nation stands at the face of Destiny and seems rudderless. 

There is no banner to draw forth the huddled masses... Our Government is a corrupt bureaucratic mess, our elected officials known liars and snakes (or, worse, complicit neutered assholes too weak to try and change the known to be fucked system), our identity lost behind Right Wing usa-symbols2idealist propaganda and Left Wing anti-Imperial propaganda (in here you find your Environmental, Social, and Economic political groups) to the point that the idea of ever going back to the Nation we once were is a muddled impossibility. 

Too cynical and abused to keep getting brought back with the traditional symbols of Patriotism and Love of Country, what this nation needs is a new symbol to draw up the inspiration... Something that speaks to America of today (the America that will forever be going forward)...

What we need is Metallica...

Opening up a recent Dodgers vs. Giants game, Kirk Hammett and James Hatfield preformed our National Anthem in a way that I feel should be THE ONLY WAY this song is preformed from this day forth...

As an instrumental (preferably, distorted, electric guitars).

 

 

Ooooh Say, can you see.....

Isn't that nice???

Some howling guitars screaming out into the vastness of a stadium filled with drunk sports fans just counting down the minutes until the Ump announced “Play Ball” and this dated practice of forced patriotic displays... 

Better than sitting through some tween “oooo” and “aaaa” her way through vocal exercises disguised as our Nation’s Hymn or some shrill pitched pack of tragedy survivors mumble along to a backing tape for the millionth time. 

Anything would be... And it’s because our Anthem is an unsingable song.

whitney-national-anthem_s640x427Only one person has ever sung the song right, ever. 

Besides, doing it this way- converting the song into an instrumental instead of a sung song- makes more sense than some of my previous attempts to change the Anthem ( in full disclosure, this is actually my fifth attempt to try and have the National Song changed. My closest previous attempt happened in 2005 when- thanks to a little invention called MySpace- I managed to Dane Cook my way to 26 signees on a petition site I had created to change our national song to the guitar instrumental from "Top Gun”.)

Not to mention that the electric guitar is perhaps the most American of instruments. It just makes too much sense!!!

Still not sold??? 

Just think how much better it will be when our Nation is standing there at the Olympics being presented with the Gold in whogivesafuck and pouring out of the speakers in Jimi Hendrix’s imagining... Or maybe a soft bluesy number by Mr. B.B. King reserved for Military funerals and Events of Mourning. 

It is certainly better than the tinny brass band and Kate Smith in all her splendor croaking out the Standard to the closed eyed boredom of all in attendance that we currently have to subject ourselves to for the love of this Great Nation. 

So give it a thought, next time you find yourself standing at attendance listening to some local hero get her fifteen minutes by shitting all over the pride of her Nation...

avettThink about how much better it would be to see the Avett Bros. fingerpick and banjo their way through a revival version of the Anthem not heard since Sherman’s march on Savannah...

 

It only makes sense...
