When you compare our national anthem to a good national anthem like New Zealand's, you realise pretty quickly that our national anthem is crap.

Our anthem is dreadful, but at least it wasn't written by a slave owner.

But I digress, our anthem is so sh*t that we don't even bother to sing the second part.

Awful is putting it mildly.

But seriously though, when our national anthem was being sung at the NRL grand final I quickly switched channels for a minute there.

I just don't get that stirring sense of pride when Advance Australia Fair is sung.

I really like the Russian anthem, very majestic. Agree that NZ and Sth Africa both have great anthems. Rugby playing nations have good anthems it seems, we being the anomaly.
