Ordinarily, I'm a purist when it comes to the National Anthem, but this one stirred my soul. In the wake of all the recent bashing of the National Anthem, this band, Madison Rising, decided to respond. The result is this.


The lead singer is a veteran, and that just makes this so much better.

    As difficult to perform as it is difficult to be vigilant for our liberties. The way it was meant to be.

    I notice a lot of folks arguing over the content of the our national anthem, and apparently quit a few dislike the words intently.

    That doesn't suprise me much, as there have always been a few who disagreed with the Foundation from the begining. And they weren't worried about there being slavery, or driving Indians off the land, God knows and history shows that more than a few Loyalist owned slaves or fought Indian Tribes for their land.

    They were just upset that there was no longer a Crown to tell everyone what they should be happy with. Their argument isn't with the "imoralities" of the Founding of the US, but with the idea of individuals having any kind of liberty or rights defined by something other than Government.

    It's so wonderful to see a group of young proud Americans show their admiration and respect for our nation and for our flag.
    Thanks Madison Rising for this rocking version of our national anthem, I wish I saw it yesterday, to download and to add to my playlist of patriotic songs for our Independence day party. I'll buy it for this weekends party :)

    wrong part jerk face...next time don't try to post HALF a song NOT with a singer of Irish music around..

    A Soldier's Song


    Soldiers are we,
    whose lives are pledged to Ireland
    some have come from a land beyond the wave,
    Sworn to be free,
    no more our ancient sireland
    Shall shelter the despot or the slave;
    tonight we man the Bearna Baoghal
    In Erin's cause.
    , come woe or weal;
    'Mid cannon's roar and rifle's peal
    We'll chant a soldier's song.


    NOW microbrain we have the word SLAVE mentioned...so let's go back to original STUPID statement

    "It is also, as far as i know, the only National anthem in the developed industrialized western first-world to mention slavery."

    OH and one more thing the Bombs referred to by Key were fired from CANNONS...or are you so stupid you think the British were throwing them?

    so mid cannon's roar covers it....so , moron...play the clintonian hairsplits all you want

    He's where Progressives got started: Wisconsin. I bet he was one to also protest so the Unions could rule over him.

    I pray all Americans wake up and rid our nation of this progressive scourge!

    It's funny you mention slavery, as many of our troops and civilians were captured and made slaves. Yet America abolished slavery while other countries did not, continuing the practice until 1913 and further like Somalia, who still condones slavery.

    The Sudan still has public slave markets. Common Arab practice.

    Thank you Jean, I was surprised that so many Americans are unaware that slavery still exists where it began thousands of years ago.
