    I like the anthem the U.S. has, so I think we should keep "The Star-Spangled Banner". Unlike (m)any of the other songs mentioned in the comments, "The Star-Spangled Banner" is not protected by copyright and is in the public domain.

      It was written in the late 19th century by Katherine Lee Bates and set to a tune (Samuel Ward's Materna) that also predates Steamboat Willie and eternal copyright.

      Better than Star Spangled Banner.
