I've heard British French Spanish you name it but Russian anthem i could listen to as classical music, i sh*t you not.

There is a reason Kerry is asking for more funds for information outlets to combat the Russia Today RT

I've been watching a mix of RT and western MSM like CNN fox bbc CBC etc

I've never heard full Russian Federation anthem till one time on RT

It is a mighty song with deep history, unlike American anthem worded in such a way that is shows only broken promises in modern times. American anthem would be awesome if only it ringed true.

well it's better than ours for sure:


even fellow Italians don't really like it, it's not me being a snob about it


But i never understood the need for an anthem in general, itś really just a form of brainwashing, instilling this fake sense of pride into young and impressionable children.
like you said for america it applies to all of them: they are just tales of (possible) former glory and projections of imaginary greatness.

Not true sir

If the country is just and has sovereignty, you can be proud of achievements of your ancestors

For example Canadian national anthem used to really mean something until 9/11 and Canada became US NATO puppet in wars

US national anthem was awesome till they killed JFK and became modern day nazis

And so on

You like the Russian Anthem, and obviously Russia in general. Good for you. But why the dig at America? (Are you even American?) The American anthem is 'broken promises in modern times?' I don't think so. It's a battle song, thanking the brave and thanking God for winning the battles that need be fought. And the Russian anthem isn't so 'deep history'. They only came up with the words in the year 2000. I posted them below.

56% of Russians felt proud when hearing the national anthem.
39% could recall the words of the first line of the anthem.
25% of Russians said they liked it.
(source below)

United States of America
The Star Spangled Banner


Oh, say! can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming;
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:
Oh, say! does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In fully glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution!
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh, thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust":
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.


Now lets compare that to the words of the Russian Anthem -
(which has only been in use since 2000 )


Russia – our sacred homeland,
Russia – our beloved country.
A mighty will, a great glory –
These are your heritage for all time!

Be glorious, our free Fatherland,
Age-old union of fraternal peoples,
Ancestor-given wisdom of the people!
Be glorious, our country! We are proud of you!
From the southern seas to the polar lands
Spread are our forests and fields.
You are unique in the world, one of a kind –
This native land protected by God!

Wide spaces for dreams and for living
Are opened for us by the coming years
Our loyalty to the Fatherland gives us strength.
Thus it was, thus it is and thus it always will be!

And the Kremlin tried to add this but failed -
its mighty wings spread above us
The Russian eagle is hovering high
The Motherland's tricolor symbol
Is leading Russia's peoples to victory


Anthem of Russia.
Anthem of USA

To make you feel a bit better, ours is even worse (but`s the oldest official song being an Anthem (it became only in 1932 our Anthem, but it`s from 1572 originally)...
