    ... National Anthem, we should also have an Ironic National Anthem, and for that, I choose "Jesusland" from Ben Folds:

    Britain has "God Save the Queen" as their National Anthem, and "Rule, Britannia" is their informal Ironic National Anthem. I've always thought that the lyrics from the song are, at the same time, grandiose and supremely pessimistic:

    "Rule, Britannia! Britannia rule the waves:
    "Britons never, never, never will be slaves."

    "I'm Mitt Romney, and I'm the real Mitt Romney. All the other Mitt Romneys are just mass-debating." -- Mittbot ver.12.0
