    I would say USA's Star Spangled Banner is the best, then comes Canada's as second, then Britian's at 3rd, then France's at 4th.

    Listen to all the national anthems here, http://www.national-anthems.net/index.html

    What are your opinions?

    I'm not a big fan of the star spangled banner... I mean, it's about the flag. So what? I'd prefer having America the Beautiful as the national anthem... but I guess that won't happen cause it has the word "god" in it.

    No way, im an aussie, so by no means being biased, but the New Zeealand national anthem is awesome, and easily the best. Gmlasam, you are just being completley biased! The star spangled banner sounds S*&%

    Okay, let's have a pointless argument on which country's national anthem is "better", shall we...

    This is like arguing whether the Alien or Predator is cooler...

    "The Alien is soooooo gonna get his ass kicked, that is if he has an ass".
    I think Burkina Faso's national anthem is easily the coolest, with all the tongue clicking and what not.

    If you like the anthem of Burkina Faso, you gotta love the nat'l anthem of Tuva w. the throat singing and all. anyone know when Tuva plays Faso in Davis Cup?

    This match won't be televised, ed, they are among the only countries in the world still playing with wood racquets. Hey, when the national average yearly income is $200, you can't exactly run out and get an ncode!

    gmlasam, Thanks for the link. Out of curiosity I will listen to some of the anthems from countries obscure to my knowledge.

    Yea, America would definitely have the best anthem if they changed it to America the Beautiful. Why not have a national anthem about the beauty of our country instead of a song written about a revolutionary war battle?
