Debout les damné de Bush
As Long As We're Talking Anthems...

Our Lord and Savior president, who really ought to be paying attention to more important things, thinks the Stars & Stripes should be sung exclusively in English (make that American, goddammit), as if singing the anthem in French or Swahili or Marsian could in any way diminish its admittedly (and susprisingly) inspiring bombast. Here's one that sounds great in any language, even if its uses were as idiotic as its intended legacy: here it is.

 

 

And if your're in the mood to sing along...

Вставай, проклятьем заклейменный
Весь мир голодных и рабов
Кипит наш разум возмущённый
И в смертный бой вести готов.
  Весь мир насилья мы разроем
  До основанья, а затем
  Мы наш мы новый мир построим,
  Кто был никем, тот станет всем!

     Это есть наш последний
И решительный бой.
С Интернационалом
Воспрянет род людской
