Everyone knows that "The Star-Spangled Banner", written by Francis Scott Key and composed by John Stafford Smith, was a banger in its time, but I believe that "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" by Mark Keahi'i Ho'omalu slaps even harder, while also having chill vibes which gives it replayability. These reasons and more are why the United States should choose "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" as our new national anthem.

To be honest, people are getting bored of "The Star-Spangled Banner" which is fair, considering we hear it so often. However, I can listen to "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" on replay for days at a time, so if anything, people would be asking for it to be sung twice before sporting events. "The Star-Spangled Banner" is also too easy to sing for what it is worth (I was in my high school choir for two years and I can attest that it was the easiest song we sang), while I believe that "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" would provide just the right amount of challenge sought after by most national anthem singers.

"The Star-Spangled Banner" is also too old and has no place in pop culture anymore. For example, "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" was heard in the Lilo and Stitch Movie, while there was a significant lack of "The Star-Spangled Banner" in said movie. While I am pretty sure that everyone who has seen that movie would agree that had "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" been replaced with "The Star-Spangled Banner", the movie would have been much lamer and less exciting. However, if you would look at any movie that has "The Star-Spangled Banner" in it, such as Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" (voted fan-favorite movie with "The Star-Spangled Banner" in it on IMDB), I know everyone would agree the movie would have slapped harder had "The Star-Spangled Banner" been replaced with "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" as would have any other movie if "The Star-Spangled Banner" had been replaced.

Replacing "The Star-Spangled Banner" with "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" would also show Hawaii, our fiftieth state, that last is definitely not least and would thereby increase morale and patriotism amongst them. This is where this idea might get a little contentious among the other states, but they could all just change the song lyrics when sung in their state. For example, if it was being sung in Minnesota, it could be something like "Minnesotan Roller Coaster Ride." Even better, we could just change it to "American Roller Coaster Ride" and boom, problem solved. 

"The Star-Spangled Banner" has been performed thousands of times over the years by many different artists and bands, a list so long it even includes none other than Fergie, who, after that performance, honestly should have been the last performer but alas. That just goes to show that most possible renditions have been done already. However, once we make "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" our new national anthem, it will open many new doors for artists to create their own renditions.

Please help me to make this a reality by signing this petition. Thank you for taking the time to read all of this and no matter what you decide to do in regards to signing: understandable, have a great day.
