Star Mangled Banner

Today is National Anthem Day. The Star Spangled Banner became the U.S. National Anthem on March 3rd, 1931.

Seems like the right time to look back at some memorable renditions of the anthem from the past...good, bad, and ugly. In no particular order:


Head Banger at the hockey game

Cop Rock

Mo Cheeks' best assist ever

Marvin Gaye

Whitney Houston

Wayne Messmer at the 1991 NHL All-Star Game. I still miss the Chicago Stadium.

Cop Rock the Sequel

I could only find the audio of the classic Carl Lewis butcher job.

Someone named Sissel, who at least knew the melody
