Yes I know I'm not at all patriotic...

Lets see if I can remember the Australian one from memory...

Australians all let us rejoice
For we are young and free
On golden soil and wealth for toil (?)
Our home is gert by sea (gert?)
Our land revolves in natures gift (I know that's wrong)
In beauty rich and frail (I think it's frail, rail doesn't make sense...)
For history's sake
Let every state
Advance Australia Fair
"Caitlyn Jenner is an incredibly brave and stunningly beautiful woman."

I was sort of right...
Australians all let us rejoice
For we are young and free
We've golden soil and wealth for toil,
Our home is girt by sea:
Our land abounds in nature's gifts
Of beauty rich and rare,
In history's page let every stage
Advance Australia fair,
In joyful strains then let us sing
Advance Australia fair.

hahaha russia's made me laugh. It's way better than ours IMO. Overly dramatic but i like that.
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

Sadly that is true. The Canadian one is alright too I suppose, better than the American one, but I could be biased, being Canadian.

Ahhh, National Anthems :) There's tons of good ones. Here are some I like that haven't been mentioned.

Turkey,
Israel
And of course my home, Switzerland.

Now - the words in some of these are an entirely different issue :)

Hm, interesting how you matched up my words there (no, of course I'm not implying anti-emitism or what have you XD I just wouldn't necessarily have qualified the Israeli Anthem with that. I was more thinking of Turkey's extreme nationalism there. That, again, also not to say that Turkey is all bad XD)

I know, I meant to erase that last bit. Oops. Turks are known for extreme nationalism though so it being in their anthem really doesn't surprise me.

It's not my favorite sounding, but Poland's national anthem is about some soldiers marching or something, which is kind of badass.
The post above this is false.
