    I am an old timer, plus military retired. Never thought a rock band playing the National Anthem could impress me, but these kids did. Listen and see what you think. Hope the link works. It not copy and paste in search engine.

    Keep in mind, this is the age group for the young people in our military today laying down thier lives for their country. Keep an open mind.

    Sounded awful. That is not how it should be sung.
    That did nothing for me.

    Though it wasn't traditional it was surely sung from the heart and I liked it. Certainly not a replacement for the traditional.

    The visuals touched my heart...............................okay, I cried. It started with the wife (wedding band and engagement ring on finger) receiving the triangle folded flag. Yep, I cried.

    I really liked it compared to some of the other groups that have been destroying it.

    I still like the traditional version. But I must give the kids credit where credit is do. Not exactly my type of music but was still good and certainly was from their heart! It is a refreshing thing to see and hear younger folks thinking that positive and with true emotion about America the land of the free and home of the brave! And hopefully it will remain that way! I guess that is up to us at this point! Thanks Deehunter!
    God Bless America!

    When I started this trend, I in know way thought this should replaced the traditional way the National Anthem is played, but I was stating that this group (who I have never heard of before) did a great job based on todays music trends. I tried to look at it as a lot of young people would look at it today. They do a nice presentation based on their way of trying to express their pride in the USA.

    Keep in mind, these young people are the age group of kids that are laying down their lives for thier country all over the world.
