i really can't decide between La Marseillaise
and Das Lied der Deutschen
i'd say that the German anthem is better composed
but the French has got that badass revolutionary attitude.
in other words
prog vs. punk
The Italian one rules everything, ever
its just like "fuck you mate"
it's baddie entrance music
The Soviet/Russian anthem is great. Sample lyrics: "We are badass ... we enjoy to crush impudent neighbours with overwhelming military force ... our nation covers eighth of world's land area ... our women are the blondest and most mercenary ..."
Basically any anthem with gloriously ironic lyrics I will enjoy.
I heard it once, and for some reason I felt like I'd heard it a million times before.
the South African one is my favourite even if it is a weird cut and shut job: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFW7845XO3g
ALGERIA includes:"We swear by the lightning that destroys, By the streams of generous blood being shed"
"When we spoke, none listened to us, So we have taken the noise of gunpowder as our rhythm, And the sound of machine guns as our melody"
and the people of HUNGARY are clearly way more into black metal than anyone realised:
"No freedom's flowers return, from the spilt blood of the dead, and the tears of slavery burn, which the eyes of orphans shed."
