8 Indonesia Raya - Indonesia

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

I love Indonesia

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 Mongol Ulsiin Turiin Duulal - Mongolia

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

12 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

13 Aegukga - South Korea
14 March of the Volunteers - China

The most powerful country on earth duh

15 Majulah Singapura - Singapore
16 Phleng Chat - Thailand V 2 Comments
