Is This Version of The National Anthem Awful or Patriotic?

This is Madison Rising, “America’s Most Patriotic Rock Band”, performing before this weekend’s Daytona 500.  Their rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” has raised some ire among many people; what do you think?

 

I’m kinda torn on this.  There is part of me that likes to keep the Anthem clean and traditional. I don’t like pop divas adding all those crazy vocal runs, I don’t like people making it “personal” by adding their own style to it…but on the flip, this is America!  Land of the free, home of the brave, freedom of expression, freedom of speech, et cetera et cetera!

I think these guys are mostly getting bashed because they LOOK like douches.  They have a pre-fab look, like a boy band but with a “rock” template instead of a “pop” one. It’s like Creed had a baby with a .38 Special tribute band, and that baby was shaken by a mean nanny.

The more I rant about it, the more I think these guys suck.  What do you think?
