What I am getting at, is that our song is not 'absolutely horrible' like some are saying.
Getting up on an Olympic Podium and listening to Waltzing Matilda or God Save the Queen? Shocked

It is much better than some think, it's uplifting and makes us feel proud.
We have a great anthem, if you hate it then deal with it or leave.

I like both GSTQ (English side of me) and AAF (Aussie side). I happily sing along with pride when either anthem is played so I agree that it isnt absolutely horrible.

Australia needs an anthem that states who they are, and their intentions, take for example Rule Britannia (not an anthem, but all the same), or La Marseillaise (I'm French and obviously biased, but that anthem I think would scare the shit out of other anthems, and translate the lyrics as well)

Its pretty shit our anthem tbh...but i will still stand and sing it with pride when its being played or sung
-1.
Look at other nations, slow anthems with a lot of heritage.
Ours is up-lifting and is enjoyable to sing.

"Our home is girt by see" Wouldn't have guessed...
1. It's Sea, not See. As in Ocean. Rolling Eyes
2. Listen to a few more anthems and I am sure you will find ones that make ours look great.

O Canada for example is an alright anthem but when I compare O Canada to Advance Australia Fair - much prefer ours.

An obvious typo...you can't compare one anthem to another, it doesnt work that way

Enfy in year 10 our french teacher made us sing the french anthem at the start of class every lesson. Still love it. Especially the last bit where we just screamed it pretty much

Excuse the horrid spelling but I can only spell words I learnt via eye, not via sound, so, I fail.

I dislike the jingoism and inherent nationalism present in all national anthems. These days in our increasingly globalised world there is less and less that separates us from other nations and cultures, and anthems, like flags and currencies, are becoming obsolete.
