Countries With the Worst National Anthems
The Top Ten
A good anthem should be about the country. Not about one person who is fleecing the masses and on top of that we are praying for her salvation!
It's dull, funereal, outdated and disgustingly elitist. I'm English and am embarrassed at every public event at which it's played. Give me "Land of Hope and Glory" any day if it wasn't so imperialistic - just tweak the lyrics a bit.
At the 2016 Euros this stands out as being by far the most dismal and downbeat of the lot. The music makes your average funeral dirge sound like Uptown Funk while the words are imperialistic and an anachronism
Sad that this was India's national anthem before Jana Gana Mana. The current national anthem brings people together (whether you are hindu, muslim, sikh etc.) and is about God being the protector and guider of india.
Contrast that with this, Britain's "God Save the King/Queen". Here the Indians were required to beseech God to protect the royal family of this small Island nation which had divided and conquered India, wrecked its economy and created religious division which destroyed Indian Unity. Here the Indians were thanking their oppressers and asking for their oppressor's enemies to be disposed of. Who even puts that stuff in an Anthem? An anthem should bring people together, not divide people.
Best national anthem with beautiful meaning n music. Written in sanskrit and the best on for so much diverse country
It's the best anthem inspiring eveyperson in country. If you can't understand it don't judge it.

I love this anthem. Inspiring. - Billyv
Canadian anthem is very patriotic I think I like it
Worst national anthem I ever head. Everything about it sounds like the opening theme of an animated cartoon for kids under 5 years old.
You are entitled to have your oppinion and I am entitled to have mine. My oppinion is that this anthem is better than americas. I mean Canada is the greatest country in the world.V 3 Comments
You don't understand anything, is a revolutionary song not a military one, it has been written in 1792, therefore the words are those ones used at this time about Revolution. And French Revolution is worldly known, used and applauded.
Many famous songs begin with the French national anthem, like for example "All You Need Is Love" famous song of the great Beatles.
Maybe for that reason, this anthem is appreciated by English people.
I'm French and I do also appreciate American, English and Russian ones, also because there are so famous.
I'm mexican and God, even I can say french anthem is so good. Is good its in music, good in its lyrics. It's not military, it's historical
Patriotic much better than ukV 9 Comments
It is just boring. It doesn't inspire passion or blind nationalism, it just saps enthusiasm.
Soul crushingly dull. It just isn't a song that makes you want to stand a be proud for your country.
One day the anthem will change... was something said decades ago
I love it.V 10 Comments
Yes its true, our flag plagiarism The USA, our national anthem is Indonesian folk song, our government rule by commonwealth policy. I'm a Chinese born Malaysia.
Do not judge our country. I bet yours are great but saying other is plain WRONG.
Stolen from a Indonesia folk song.. umm jah
The flag of Malaysia is not a copy of USA. The stripes were originally blue and white. The color of the canton were red but the judges for the design contest changed it. The original designer is Mohamed Hamzah, an architect from Johor Bahru.V 7 Comments
This is why I absolutely hate thetoptens. Russia and India are considered to be the best national anthems but some jealousy retard folks vote them for expressing anti septiment. YOU MUST ALLOW ONLY THOSE TO VOTE WHO ARE 18+ AND HAVE A ACCOUNT, OR ELSE THRASH YOUR GARBAGE WEBSITE.
I am from India and the Russian anthem is one of the best I've heard, far better captures the spirit of russians and much better than many of the western ones.
This is ridiculous. The words and tune of the Russian anthem are inspiring and legendary. Most of this list is garbage, in fact.
Russia: has an anthem greater than most western countries and a military greater than most western countries. - MagmaFoxV 8 Comments

Not really bad isn't it?

One of the beautiful national anthem in the world..here it..then you'll know I am right.V 3 Comments
Melody stolen from a British drinking song, fantastical lyrics which no American has the brainpower to comprehend, and 3 other verses which nobody knows.
The American anthem rarely sung well, with so much extra unnecessary flair and cues from pop-music. The tune is also not particularly inspiring, and neither are the words. It's just about being able to see the flag in the battle. No great descriptive words about the nation (other than the end), just looking at a flag.
Do you guys even know when or where the song was made. Also here come the American Stereotypes
It tells the story of 300 years of historyV 22 Comments
Most depressing anthem I've ever heard. - GriffinDoge
Need improvement, I think capture another land and make a new anthem.

SucksV 2 Comments
It just keeps dragging on and on and on and the song has so rhythm or flow too it just words being said without and organized pattern
Way too long! Cut to the chase and end it! It has no rhythm or flow!
It is really vibrant and emotional...
Most violent national athem.
El Salvador national anthem is the best because it is an invitation to be proud of who you are and where you come from!
Has the best national anthem. You must hear listen to it.
Count your blessings if you can't understand the deliberately plain, aggressively stupid and violent lyrics, set to a passable tune of middling jingoism. The last bit, "Advance, advance, advance, advance! " sounds like someone raping your ears.
Just not just not that good
Really poor song. Terrible. No one likes itV 2 Comments
