    National Anthem Butchered

    Just an observation and an opinion-Boyz II Men should NEVER sing the National Anthem.

    Not even close to Barr’s clowning.

    I thought it was well done, just not mixed as well as it should have been considering the performers.

    It just goes to tastes in music.

    A good national anthem singing should take about 2 minutes, 10 seconds, or so, and liberties should not be taken with the song in any way. I thought Whitney Houston's singing of the anthem at the Super Bowl back in the 90's was the absolute best ever.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    I'm with you. It has sheet music, a score, melody, words, and tempo.

    Leave my anthem alone!

    I'd much prefer the anthem be played, rather than sung / butchered like is guaranteed when a "singer" takes the stage. USMC Band, or other service-band would be wonderful.

    Someone always screws up the NA . When it's anyone but true Americans they will never sing it right . Especially when they think it's all about their own voice and not caring what is right . Soon as they started singing i changed channels until the first quarter started and when it got 20-0 and 49ers' leading i turn the TV off and got on my computer . I was only hoping GB would kick AZZ over SF . I'll watch the SB but i'll be rooting for the Chiefs !!

    I went and watched it and I didn't have a problem with it. My favorite? No. But it wasn't disrespectful or anything. A bit stylistic but they aren't the only ones that have ever gone there.

    Jimi Hendrix may have been the first to alter the national anthem, although not with vocals, but with his guitar solo at Woodstock. Created a stir back then.

    Good harmony, but bad arrangement. The closer they stick to the real melody, the better. The Chiefs game had a better anthem.
