Personally I think Wales, France and Italy have the best anthems. I agree that England should change theirs GSTQ is just awful. Jerusalem would be a much better replacement.

As a Welshman I love the Welsh one.

I also think that Jerusalem is a fantastic song and should be the anthem.

I like the Russian anthem too.

France and the maori version of new zealand's.

I don't understand it, which makes it almost romanticised.

Although I think that it's marginally better than GSTQ I'm certainly no great fan of 'Oh Canada'. However I do like how they play it at all sporting events, not just ones involving the national team (even if I do feel a bit of a fraud stood up with my hand across my chest like they do here but not really knowing the words).

Italian, French, Welsh, Irish (Ireland's Call) and Scottish are all pretty good. In fact most of them are okay from the main rugby playing nations other than GSTQ (can't think of any of the others off the top of my head).

My Mrs thinks I'm unpatriotic for not liking God Save The Queen. My response is that it's not my fault that our anthem is depressing and crap.

I'd love Jerusalem to be the English anthem. It never fails to make the hairs on the back of the neck stand up.

France have a great national anthem.

I am very surprised that you English guys seem to be unaware that GSTQ is the British national anthem. England do not appear to have one of their own.

It took the English donkeys years to realise that the Union flag was ..well the Union Flag and NOT the English flag. Very glad to see that you are now mainly using the St George Cross as the English flag because you did not half look dopey waving the wrong flag when England played.

Best anthem for me Germany.

England doesn't need a separate national anthem as God Save the Queen suffices and just because a bunch of pitiful republicans use Flower of Scotland or Land Of My Fathers, it doesn't in any way mean that their true anthem is anything other than God Save the Queen too.
It is a boring anthem, but so what, no anthems have any real history and most are just full of BS lines that have never really represented the country or the people they are supposed to represent, at least God Save the Queen is the anthem of a real country, that country being the UK, one state, one sovereign, one flag, one anthem.

As a Welshman I'm biased but I love our anthem. When everyone is singing that at the top of their voices inside the MS with the roof shut, it truly is a hairs on the back of your kneck standing up moment.

Scotland is another anthem I like, along with Ireland's 'Ireland's call' is it called?. Italy's is pretty good also along with France's.

Danny Boy?

Think GSTQ is pretty rubbish as anthems go, not rousing at all. Flower of Scotland is pants too.

Annoyingly France's is one of the best out there, I like Italy's too and one of the S American countries' (can't remember which).

Jersusalem is one of my favourite songs/hymmes and I'd love it as our national anthem, be up there with the best then.

I think England really wants to sort itself out with a national anthem and stop using the British one before the Commonwealth Games.

The thought of a medal Ceremony for an England gold in Glasgow with GSTQ being drowned out with BOOOOOOOOOOs would really not be a good idea.

Jerusalem would work well but is it not all about grime, outside cludgies and poverty.

It will never happen as the government will not wish to recognise England as a country seperate from the State. Easier to just let Scotland, Wales, NI have their little sing-song as they'd kick up too much of a fuss if made to sing their national anthem (GSTQ).

The patriotism on this thread is shocking. For Queen and Country I stand.

God save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save The Queen:
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us:
God save The Queen.

O Lord our God arise,
Scatter her enemies,
And make them fall:
Confound their politics,
Frustrate their knavish tricks,
On Thee our hopes we fix:
God save us all.

Thy choicest gifts in store,
On her be pleased to pour;
Long may she reign:
May she defend our laws,
And ever give us cause
To sing with heart and voice
God save The Queen!

I really love the French.

The Dutch one is funny because they really hate the Germans yet the first words in their anthem are : We come from German blood Laugh

Duty, patriotism has little to do with liking an anthem or not. That's like saying someone who was against Gaddaffi isn't a patriot for agreeing with their leader!

May he sedition hush,
and like a torrent rush,
Rebellious Scots to crush,
God save the King.

Italy without doubt.

The Lyrics are quality as well.

Always make sure I catch this anthem when Italy play in an International football tournament.
