Seriously, though: Wouldn’t the Olympics be so much better is we changed our national anthem to Party in the USA?
I’m not even joking. The song holds everything that America stands for within it’s lyrics: dancing, Hollywood, and Jay-Z! And it’s cultural relevance is indisputable.
And if Party in the USA was our national anthem, when our country inevitably takes home every gold metal ever (USA! USA! USA!), would they have to pretend to know the lyrics to some long, boring song? NO! Instead, they could drop it like it’s hot to the musical stylings of Hannah Montana herself.
Just something to think about.
