Default best national anthems

who do you think has the nicest sounding national anthem

whilst france sounds like the national anthem for just about any scene. its almost to cheezy now

i rather like the trinidad and tobago anthemhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkuM2c6bD8I

This version of the Marseillaise from the movie Casablanca is kinda of cool.

I love ours and always will. I think it is one of the best. I also love the French national anthem it has a nice ring to it.

followed by France ... USA

Wish the kiwi one was ours instead of the tupperware one foisted upon us a few years ago by the bogans and tree-huggers. Might have to move there.

This one should have been ours. Judith Durham (Australia's darling from the old 60's group The Seekers)

yeah i agree mitch. we got duped with our anthem. for a country that can pack a punch when it comes to good tunes we really phoned it in with our national anthem

good on the seekers for rocking it still today as well.

it would seem that that millennium era was the last time australia was particularly moving forward and had oodles going for it. before a decade of just the weakest political choices made and a terrible lazy and bogan attitude

still... i do love having a day off for a horse race :D

worst anthem would have to be the German NA

Canada isn't much better

Aussie anthem is just awful , should be this = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMdbVHPmCW0


Kiwi anthem wins , hands down - to bad they have to spoil it with the haka
Vanuatu NA is pretty good
south African NA is up there too

As an aside, Ingrid Bergman was smokin' hot

Dixie was a fine anthem. It was a much more upbeat and catchy tune than the one we have now.

There are "shades" of God Save the Queen here and there running through it but it adds a strong Caribbean taste to it that works for me

Sung by the Russian army- starting at 1:08
