Someone sent me this video tonight. At first, I wasn't sure I liked it, but then I found myself feeling very proud of America.
Would like comments on your thoughts of this version of the song and the video as a whole.

Well it was a little too much rock for me, but they nailed it.

I think this is on here somewhere already, or maybe it was posted before we moved here? Anyway, for the most part I'm not a "hard" rocker, but I really liked this. If I remember right, I think the singer is a Navy Vet?
But what I like most about it is the fact that a group of younger folks wanted to do this song. To me that speaks volumes and tells me that there is some hope left in society.

I agree Ronbo. While watching these young men sing, it came through to me that they were not just performing, they felt the words to the song. I also loved the video, especially the football players carrying our flag on to the field. I believe this happened in the season after Sept 11, 2001. I will always prefer the original version of our anthem, but as long as the words are sang with true patriotic feeling, I am good. jmho

Any young person showing patriotism for this country is good in my book. Although, this isn't my genre of music...very spirited performance!

As a musician who enjoys taking known songs and trying to "update them", I can really relate to this composition. Sure, it's not "traditional", but that doesn't give it any less impact. The emotion is definitely there, and that's what is important. The words remain the same, and the heart of the national anthem does indeed show through. Our times are changing. We've tried to bring the younger adults into our way of thinking (in terms of tradition and national pride) and while it's worked on some, I would venture to say that it has failed for many. When you can't change the young adults, you have to change your approach. And I think these guys have done a great job of that. Whether it resonates with the younger adults is another matter entirely, but I commend them on the effort, and think it was a job well done.
