In Australia we don't take life too seriously. As a pastime, we sometimes argue about the National Anthem. But once a real solution presented itself. Something good, that we could relate to. If you respect other Nations you should stand for the first 30 seconds or so, then do as we do and relax.



So, what music should your anthem be played to. Let's rock the world!

UK should have God save, God save Lizzie to the tune of We Will Rock You by Queen

US should have Born in the USA Bruce Springsteen, not sure how that scans with the original words though

That was petty cool.Thanks for making my night. Go Barnsey

I saw this Telstra Commercial years ago and although I hate most Telco's I do think this song would be an inspiring national anthem as well
We Are One.


I think this song would stir the heart strings of most non-Aussies too.

With the way America has been acting lately this would be our new anthem.

Thought I would embed that one for you - It would be a seriously good replacement anthem.



or even the original



Sorry pheonix, you beat me to it

No probs. We have some wonderful songs about our country, songs that really tell it like it really is.

It is a pity some people get put off by some of our wildlife, seriously, who wants to go to the USA and meet a Grizzly bear, Africa and meet Lions or the subcontinent and meet Bengal Tigers. (Actually, I do but then, I'm an Aussie)

It is all the same and you only need to listen to the guide and only if your in an area that has not been tamed. That is the same almost everywhere on the planet.

Hand feeding tame wallabies and kangaroos is awesome. It is a largely peaceful place with much of it unspoiled.

Wow, nice, Australia does not have the word "god" in it.

Every other country has it!

Our country has no official religion. In fact, it states in our constitution that the government is not allowed to impose a particular religion on the people (so i heard). Our current PM is an atheist...

As a matter of fact though, Australia used to share the same anthem with Britain, until it was changed to what it is now, Advance Australia Fair.

This song explains Australia fairly well...so it could very well be our new national anthem

I would go for Born in the USA as the US anthem. Cool track. Great to hear it at the Olympics wouldn't it.
