Rock Band Pummels National Anthem With Branches And Rocks, Leaves It For Dead (Video)


The event: the NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Saturday. The song: Our glorious Star Spangled Banner. The band: Madison Rising, which bills itself as the “world’s most patriotic Rock Band.” The reaction: “Booooo!” Let’s watch the fun:

    I have no idea why everyone keeps whining about this version. The group’s own spin on the national anthem has been very popular on social media for quite awhile now. I’ve seen it posted on veteran groups on fb (groups with up to hundreds of thousands of members) and the reaction was always overwhelmingly positive. Their original youtube video has nearly 40,000 up votes and less than 900 down votes. The Star Spangled Banner is only supposed to be sung one way? You could’ve fooled me. I don’t think I’ve ever heard it sung the same way twice in a row. I’ll compare this version to Jimi Hendrix’s version. His was loved by the folks at Woodstock and hated by many nationwide. Now it’s loved.

    You insult Jimi Hendrix by comparing him to this shit band.
