star spangled banner

have yall heard the news. the star spangled banner, amreicas national anthem, is now done in spanish. sorry fu ckers. the words arent even the same, but they want it to match the us national anthem.

April 27, 2006 "The Star Spangled Banner" has provided the soundtrack to our national pastime since 1918, when the spirited tune debuted at a baseball game.

Now there is a new version with changes to the time-honored lyrics.

A group of Spanish music stars has presented its own take on the national anthem for Latino immigrants, in their native language, titled "Nuestro Himno" or "Our Anthem."

The idea came from music executive Adam Kidron, who sympathized with the recent immigrant demonstrations but was troubled by the number of Mexican flags in the crowd.

He hopes the new Spanish-language version of the national anthem will demonstrate Latino patriotism and encourage more American flags at the demonstrations.

"It has the passion, it has the respect, it has all of the things that you really want an anthem to have and it carries the melody," said Kidron.

Altered Lyrics Tone Down Battle

"The Star Spangled Banner" has endured some extreme versions from Jimmy Hendrix's explosive guitar rendition to one from soul signer Marvin Gaye since Francis Scott Key first wrote the poem while watching the British bombard an American fort during the War of 1812.

The current version will likely spark debate, because it is not an exact translation. Some of the classic lyrics have been changed for rhyming reasons while other phrases were altered to soften war references. For example:

English version: And the rockets red glare, bombs bursting in air gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

Spanish version: In the fierce combat, the sign of victory, the flame of battle in step with liberty through the night it was said it was being defended.

The original author's great-great grandson, Charles Key, finds the Spanish version unpatriotic and is adamant that it should be sung only in English.

"I think its a despicable thing that someone is going into our society from another country and changing our national anthem," Key said.

Those behind the new song say Key and others miss the point. The Spanish version is meant to show immigrant pride in a new country where they live and work.

It will be heard across the country at 7 p.m. ET tomorrow, debuting simultaneously on more than 700 Spanish language radio stations.

Think it's a shame they are too lazy to make an attempt to learn what patriotism means and leave it the f alone.

Ya know it's funny. I've worked with people from India here as contractors. Always curious, I would ask them lots of questions about India and life there. One of the interesting things is that there are many sooo many dialects in India, that they guys I worked all from India, could not really communicate with each other in their native dialect. And even though Hindi is the 'official language' not everyone speaks it so their common language to communicate with each other here was English. Go figure.

I wish people would quit trying to force wedges between people here.

Until the US deems english as the official language at the federal level, this stuff is going to pop up. That being said, I believe it should be in english.
