    This has gotta be one of, if not the best national anthem ever written. Amazing background score, inspiring lyrics, and powerful visuals. Makes me feel nostalgic for the USSR, even though I've never been there before. :namaste:

    How do you come to that conclusion? Did you know that in the USSR, people of various ethnicities used to freely marry each other? After it broke up though, race and ethnicity based groups and political parties began appearing, and I've heard that in today's Russia, it's unthinkable to marry outside your ethnicity. The USSR's education system emphasized on the commonalities between people, and the basic tenet of socialist ideology itself is the equality of all human beings. Even in the video, you will notice that all the ethnic peoples of the USSR are represented, from the Slavs to the Central Asians as well as those in the Far East.

    It was Yeltsin and his Ukrainian and Belarussian counterparts who were responsible. The people in an immediately previously concluded referendum voted for keeping the union. So no, the people were not the problem.

    Rule Britannia. The most rousing anthem in my opinion. It's not the official national anthem of the UK, but it should be

    Anthem of Nazi Germany:



    EDIT: Translation below:

    German original

    Die Fahne hoch! Die Reihen fest geschlossen!
    SA marschiert mit ruhig, festem Schritt.
    Kam'raden, die Rotfront und Reaktion erschossen,
    Marschier'n im Geist in unser'n Reihen mit.

    Die Straße frei den braunen Batallionen.
    Die Straße frei dem Sturmabteilungsmann!
    Es schau'n aufs Hakenkreuz voll Hoffnung schon Millionen.
    Der Tag für Freiheit und für Brot bricht an!

    Zum letzten Mal wird Sturmalarm geblasen!
    Zum Kampfe steh'n wir alle schon bereit!
    Bald flattern Hitlerfahnen über alle Straßen.
    Die Knechtschaft dauert nur noch kurze Zeit!

    Die Fahne hoch! Die Reihen fest geschlossen!
    SA marschiert mit ruhig-festem Schritt.
    Kameraden, die Rotfront und Reaktion erschossen,
    Marschieren im Geist in unseren Reihen mit.

    English translation

    The flag on high! The ranks closed tightly!
    SA marches with calm, firm steps.
    Comrades shot by Red Front and reactionaries
    March in spirit within our ranks.

    Clear the streets for the brownshirts,
    Clear the streets for the stormtroopers!
    Already millions, upon seeing the swastika, are filled with hope
    The day of freedom and bread is dawning!

    The call has sounded for the last time
    We all stand ready for the fight!
    Soon Hitler's flags will fly over all streets.
    Our bondage will only last a short time more!

    The flag on high! The ranks close tightly!
    SA marches with calm, firm steps.
    Comrades shot by Red Front and reactionaries
    March in spirit within our ranks.

    The South African anthem sounds like it was written by a bunch of hippies....:rolleyes:

    And the Sri Lankan sounds too insipid.....like a forgettable Bollywood song.

    Little known fact: UNESCO actually selected the Indian National anthem, Instrumental as the Best National Anthem last year.

    ^^ I like the ones of Azeri SSR and Turkmen SSR. Don't know which one I like better though.

    Check this one (Turkmen SSR instrumental):


    Also check this one (Ukrainian SSR instrumental, has some similarity with that of USSR):
