I keep singing that same old song! You keep singing it too!

Seriously didn't know about "My Country 'tis of Thee". To be fair I'm not really big on anthems. Although it's funny music channels have shows called " The Anthems " where they just play Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chilli Peppers songs for hours.
So there are now anthems that go on too long, have the sane tune and are really dreary to listen to.
And there anthems that have the same tune used for political events as well.
