Bullcrap. The National Anthem should be either Neil Diamond's "America" or the sung Preamble from Schoolhouse Rock

Nothing says "useless passive-aggressive nobody" quite like people who start online petitions.
 
2014-02-06 09:41:18 AM
I'll only sign the petition if this dude is required to sing Guile's Theme at all official functions:

Make it "Street Fighting Man" instead and I'll...

...no, I won't.  However, I would be amused.

It does go with everything.

The White House needs to remove that petition site. It has turned into a hangout for virgins who hang out on Tumblr to make asshole petitions for attention.
 
2014-02-06 09:52:24 AM
At least someone is treating the online petition process with the respect it deserves.

/quickest way to lose me: "Sign our online petition!"

It should be american the beautiful, and then maybe the kids that sing the other version won't grow up to be warmongers.

as long as the official lyrics are

And by "someone" you mean "submitter".

I think the official song should be that one from the Coke ad, sung in all those languages just like it was done...
 
2014-02-06 10:02:52 AM
Nope, it should be the theme from Team America: World Police.
 
2014-02-06 10:04:22 AM
Lets be honest, after the whole Superbowl Coke debacle, it's not as if people have any idea what our national anthem actually is anyway. Just say it's Guile's theme from SF2, that's good enough at this point.

How about something more accurate?

Like the Big MAC song.

Not News: Someone posts yet another useless petition to the White House site. News: And then posts it on FARK, thinking folks would boost his or her self-post numbers. FARK: And some modmin greenlights it.

I see that white house petition site has basically turned into a joke, I figured as much would happen.

Shouldn't it be "Never gonna give you up"? Rck roll the world.
 
2014-02-06 10:32:43 AM

tricycleracer: And by "someone" you mean "submitter".


Looks like it. We have more comments here than the petition has signatures so far, so someone desperately wants this to go viral.

It might also help if the person submitting the petition knew to start his petition with a capital letter.

The floppy disk drive version is also pretty good.

It is a direct rip off of Mighty Wings by Cheap Trick, off of the Top Gun Soundtrack. Maybe that should be the National Anthem.

That's Ken's theme, not Guile's.

I think the Megaman 2 Dr. Wily theme is one of the most impressive.
 
2014-02-06 11:07:48 AM
It should be Hulk Hogan's theme song

I used to hate Guile. Every time I did my rolling ball attack with Blanka, he'd always Flash Kick me to oblivion.

Arkanaut: Nope, it should be the theme from Team America: World Police.


This is the only acceptable substitute as far as I'm concerned. Nothing else comes close.

Someone should petition for a loud speaker to be placed on the White House lawn that will play the Final Fantasy victory theme every time a member of Al Queda's leadership is killed.

I bet it's doing the job they really want it to do, which is divert a significant number of people from writing email and expecting a semi-relevant response, even if it's a form response. With the petition site they don't even have to think of a response to most of what they get.

Come on, everybody knows the USA's real national anthem is Pink Floyd's Money.

/Bonus points for it being outsourced to a former enemy

Arkanaut: Nope, it should be the theme from Team America: World Police.


In all seriousness, I would be behind this one.

The current national anthem is about holding out against all odds against a superior aggressor force.  That, historically, stopped applying to our nation sometime in the late 1800s when we started up the policies and technological superiority that eventually gave the Monroe doctrine some real teeth.

A self-aware semi-ironic song about coming to save the motherfarking day and how everyone has to answer to us, though... sums it up pretty well.  At least our song would have some relationship to actual reality then.

I've always thought that Dylan's "With God on our Side" would make a nice choice.

I think each president should be able to pick a new one every 4 years. A national theme song if you will.

When are they gonna say ribs?

/hopefully not obscure

If they went with "My country 'tis of thee" the instrumental version at the olympics would sound the same as the Brits national anthem.
 
2014-02-06 01:17:59 PM
Nah our National Song should Hulk Hogans theme song from the 80s Real American.
 
2014-02-06 01:21:06 PM
How about the Blues Brothers concert intro. Sure there are no lyrics, but most singers butcher the N.A. lyrics anyway, so it'll work out. It's short too, so we can get to playing the football game faster. Also, imagine that playing at the Olympics gold medal podium.

/Metallica's Seek and Destroy would work too.

isheltoe: Nah our National Song should Hulk Hogans theme song from the 80s Real American.


Obama did it.

Complete with pulsing Birth Certificate to confirm, yes, he is a real American.

/Dillinger as Francis Scott Key. That's frightening.

It's funny but it's not even slightly news, unless you consider "random guy submits suggestion to website where anyone can submit suggestions" to be news.

Hey, you can't do midi files in multiple languages, so the GOP should support this!
