Aguilerian Anthemry

I would like to mention briefly that my first and only reaction to Christina Aguilera flubbing a line of the national anthem before the Super Bowl is to blame the national anthem itself, which is a terrible song. Really, did whatever she sang have significantly less meaning than "o'er the ramparts we watched"? Frankly, that she sounded good singing the tune puts her ahead of the pack. It's a terrible tune, and it's a terrible song.

I'd be in favor of scrapping the national anthem and replacing it with almost any other song that's not "God Bless America." Personally, and this is thinking outside the box a little, I think a great anthem would just be someone shouting "America!" and then a whipcrack and then the theme to Bonanza.
