Posted on 07/03/2013 6:43:13 AM PDT by NOBO2012
What do you say we just forget about the Wons for today? We deserve it.
Instead, lets look forward to tomorrow; the best holiday ever invented by the hearts and minds of men.
Please join me in saluting Madison Rising - a rock band representing the best of American youth - in their tribute to the Star Spangled Banner.
Madison Rising promotes the principles of liberty, independence, smaller government and personal responsibility.
How heartening to see youngsters (former Navy!) so proud of their forebears, their flag, and their country. Their rendition will exorcise forever the memory of Lady Gagas sleazy, slanderous, cynical performance.
If you like it, please link it around to everyone you know to help the band surpass their target of 5 million hits by the end of Independence Day weekend.
God bless America. The land of the free and the home of the BRAVE.
Youre welcome. Now pass it on.
And dont forget to stock up on your sparklers and all the makings for smores for tomorrow!

I like/love the SSB but this version does next to nothing for me.
The Star-Spangled Banner--Thomas Chalmers (with a chorus that includes Elizabeth Spencer), 1915
The Star-Spangled Banner--Elizabeth Spencer (1917)
Nice. I remember a FReeper mentioned them last year and I watched the video and some other clips from their website, and loved the content but found the music a little too mainstream rock for me. (I prefer Slayer, Motörhead, Dying Fetus, Suffocation, classical music, blues and Frank Zappa), but I really enjoyed this one. Thanks for posting. I’ll keep following their progress.
I think some songs were never meant for rock and roll but that doesn’t stop ‘em from tryin’. It’s a myth that you can take any song ever written and make it better by ‘rockifying’ it.
BTW, did Frank Zappa ever do a version of the Star Spangled Banner? I can’t even begin to imagine how that would sound.
