The media generated 'debate' over this new version of the US national anthem seems to me to be just one more stupid diversion to entertain a crumbling society.
My complaint is not the language (who cares? ) but the utterly boring music that acompanies it (why wasn't there a protest when Whitney Houston croaked it out? or Metallica? or Beyonce?).
I am waiting to hear some Norteno, rumba, cha cha cha and flamenco versions. That will certainly make for better listening than this current pop disater.
Give me the Hendrix version any day!
