Petition To Change National Anthem To R. Kelly’s ‘Ignition’

It’s rare that, while browsing the whitehouse.gov website we find a cause that we can really get behind, but its hard not to get behind the idea of changing our 200 year old national anthem to something a little more modern, something that the American people can relate to. Three days ago such a petition popped up calling out for change. This petition recommended that we evolve, moving from The Star-Spangled Banner to R. kelly’s 2003 hit “Ignition-remix,” the petition states…

“America has changed since Francis Scott Key penned our current anthem in 1814. Since then, we have realized that after the show, it’s the after party, and that after the party, it’s the hotel lobby, and–perhaps most importantly–that ’round about four, you’ve got to clear the lobby, at which point it’s strongly recommended that you take it to the room and freak somebody “

So what do you say America? It’s time to put away the antiquated tune; At every baseball game, high school sporting event and Olympic Games opening ceremony let’s stop placing our hands over our hearts for words that have lost their meaning, let’s come together, as a nation and celebrate the land of the free and the home of the brave with an anthem that truly represents the American dream!
