The melody might sound a bit depressing at first, but the lyrics are incredibly optimistic and hopeful (Hatikvah in Hebrew means "The Hope") and can fit both sad and happy events

5 Indonesia Raya - Indonesia

Only Indonesian people who can be proud to tears when hear this song. When hearing it, the faces of all their heroes will be coming in their heads, automatically. This is a very deep song.

As Indonesian, I'm very proud to vote my country's national anthem. Indonesia Raya has very powerful lyrics. All parts of the lyrics (actually, we have 3 stanzas, and what you always hear in any ceremony is the first stanza), show not only proud and spirit of Indonesian people, but also pray and hope.

The lyric of Indonesia Raya is very powerful and valuable

Powerful lyric, rhythm and music

Nepali national anthem is the best because it tells that hundred of flowers one garland we all Nepali means that there are hundreds of flowers in one garland and it tells that we are one

It says about our history, geography, races, languages, religions, and culture.

8 Sri Lanka Matha - Sri Lanka

Its beautiful. Its Like rising up. From the world

It's very beautiful.
The meanings of the words and how it's put together is really nice.

Best national anthem ever

It is heart touching words

9 Kimigayo - Japan

It has so little words (shortest anthem in the world), yet its packs a lot of meaning (like many poems do). Mostly about praising the Emperor, though. And the fact that it was used back in the days of the empire might turn some people off. But it fits Japan as a whole, though it would be much more suited as a royal anthem in my opinion. - Midiot

10 Tiến Quân Ca - Vietnam

Brave people, brave country

The Contenders

11 Russian National Anthem - Russia

Technically, Russia is European, but I voted anyway.

CYKA BLYAT(i don't speak russian =( )

12 Majulah Singapura - Singapore

It galvanizes the nation to move the country forward in so very few sentences with such a moving music! Simply loves it.

13 Aegukga - South Korea
14 Mongol Ulsiin Turiin Duulal - Mongolia

So beautiful. The tune is gorgeous! Go Mongolia!

It's one of the best anthems out there. - CobaltCards

15 Phleng Chat - Thailand

The best

16 March of the Volunteers - China

The most powerful country on earth duh

17 İstiklal Marşı - Turkey


18 Azerbaycan Marsi - Azerbaijan

It's so menacing sounding you'd think it was an Ottoman anthem (which, given Azerbaijan's relation to Turkey, isn't so impossible). It's really good that it sounds like the song a villain sings in an opera (and it fits if you're Armenian/a journalist). It brings a lot of might to a small Eurasian country, which is impressive. - Midiot

19 Fida'i - Palestine
20 Ishy Bilady - United Arab Emirates
21 Koulouna Lil Watan - Lebanon
22 Humāt ad-Diyār - Syria
23 Aegukka - North Korea

I think this is one of the best Anthem in the world.
If there is the Russia Anthem, there is North Korea Anthem in Asia.

24 Negaraku - Malaysia
