The United States Government: Change National Anthem to "Started From The Bottom (Explicit)" by Drake

This petition had 24 supporters


The current National Anthem is beautiful, but it no longer represents America's identity as a nation. However, Drake's widely-relatable lyrics pose a modern anthem that better encapsulates the attitudes, beliefs, behaviors, and goals of America and its citizens while still paying homage to the past via the tagline "Started from the bottom; now we here". This repeated mantra reflects America's growth into the most powerful country in the world from its humble beginnings; it urges the citizen to live in the present -- where "the whole team fuckin' here" -- while remembering the strides taken "from the bottom". Furthermore, it promotes America's powerful allies via the "no new friends" mentality, exemplifying loyalty of international relations and setting staunch boundaries to other countries outside of the clique. In conclusion, modern Americans need a modern anthem in order raise nationalism, patriotism, and overall citizen morale so that they are inspired to and reminded to always push America in a progressive direction. May we never go back to the bottom.
