Best “Communist“ Country Anthems

Only songs that were used as National Anthems count. Not all of the songs are Leftist or Communist.

The Top Ten

1 State Anthem of the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics)

So iconic, it invokes such a feeling of patriotism even if you never visited it. - Bhertz

A beutiful anthem that creates the feelings of pride in the world's first Socialist country and the workers' victories over Reaction and Fascism. - DieGedankenSindFrei

2 Auferstanden aus Ruinen (German Democratic Republic)

A beutiful song (better than Deutschlandlied, in my opinion) that illustrates the day that Germany and its people rebuild their fatherland after World War II. - DieGedankenSindFrei

3 March of the Volunteers (People's Republic China)

Actually, I hear that Cuba is a nice place to visit, Venezuela isn't really Marxist Socialist, and Russia's Capitalist. Also, why don't you learn about Communism from sources other than Red Dawn and The Godless Communism so if you dislike the ideology, at least you will have decent sources to back you up rather than blatant propaganda. - DieGedankenSindFrei

Not necessarily private, but a debate that is on a better format than the comment section here. Also, I have a new proposal: If I make my statement in public, will you show your username? - DieGedankenSindFrei

It's a simple anthem that encourages the people to rise up against their oppressors. - DieGedankenSindFrei

Their "oppressors" are in Bejing, you vapid little red-diaper baby.

4 Mila Rodino (People's Republic of Bulgaria)

It is a very patriotic song with a great tune. - DieGedankenSindFrei

5 Kde domov můj and Nad Tatrou sa bkýska (Czechislovak Socialist Republic)

It two anthems with basically, the same tune (with different lyrics in Czech and Slovakian). It is a calming song. - DieGedankenSindFrei

6 Hey, Slavs (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia)

A great anthem dedicated to the Slavic peoples and it helps reflect how Tito was able to unite many different peoples under one flag. - DieGedankenSindFrei

7 La Bayamesa (Republic of Cuba)

A very patriotic anthem that reflects Cuba's independence from Spain. - DieGedankenSindFrei

8 Himnusz (Hungarian People's Republic)

Interestingly, as the original song was somewhat religious, the government tried to change the anthem into more of a Communist anthem, but they eventually decided to just use this song without the lyrics. - DieGedankenSindFrei

9 Aegukka (Democratic People's Republic of Korea)

A great patriotic song from the infamous North Korea. - DieGedankenSindFrei

10 Tiến Quân Ca (Socialist Republic of Vietnam)

An anthem about the soldiers leading the Vietnamese people to victory. - DieGedankenSindFrei

The Contenders

11 State Anthem of the LSSR (Latvian Soviet Socialist Republic)
12 The Internationale (Soviet Union)

A great, versatile song - Bhertz
