This should be Swedens national anthem, even though i like Du gamla du fria.

I would rank:

1. Canada
2. Russia
3. Germany.
4. Finland
5. Sweden

Only WC countries (UK got a good one which I exclude for example)

Top 5:
Russia (Bombastic, should be sung by an army choir.)
Germany (As above but not as good))
Sweden (a bit homer, but it is aright)
French (get extra points for its history)
USA (to slow, no drive but still has that something)

Well to be fair, the Horst-Wessel-Lied a.k.a Die fahne hoch was the hymn for NS Germany.

I'm talking about the music, which I like. That march has a lot of history for anyone who fought for Russia in the last 100 years, just for your information.

Russias national anthem is so mighty and powerful. A truly majestic piece.

Russia > all the other anthems.

I can understand the change as the removed lyrics state that Germany reach from Maas to Memel.

It is like Sweden would state that Sweden reach from Vorpommern to St Petersburg.

I think almost everybody was thinking about it, but then didn't just because somebody else would probably do it. It's great you posted it because it's actually pretty good IMO.

As a Canadian I don't like Canada's.

We should have never left "God Save the Queen"

Our Anthem sucks ass, and the lyrics are stupid too. "Our home and native land"? More like "Our home on native land"

It's alright. I know 'finns' who think that the man from Sibbe composed Oi Maamme as well xD

But at least another of our huge heroes wrote the lyrics; Runeberg!

Must say I absolutely love the French and Russian anthems though.

The Canadian one is kind of bland, unless it's for some epic event, such as winning Olympic Gold! (still get chills from hearing the crowd at Canada Hockey Place sing it)

Yeah well, those records doesn't say much. During the Napoleonic wars for example France had a standing army of some 2.500.000 soldiers. No wonder they easily beat their much smaller neighbors. In comparison Great Britain had some 200.000 thousand infantry soldiers. Lucky for them their navy was far superior, effectively keeping Napoleon out of the British isles.

I have a slightly different question (but one that wouldn't be appropriate for a new thread). How many national anthems can you recognize when listening to the music alone*.

I could recognize the anthems of Canada, UK, France, US, and Russia if hearing the music.

*I say this b/c the Canadian national anthem starts with the words "Oh Canada"...so with respect to the cdn anthem, could you recognize it by music alone?

No love for the National Anthem of Czech Republic? It's beautiful:





The Slovakian Anthem is great too! A bit sad, but beautiful as well:

It really should be thought.. Its one of the greatest composes there has been done and its about Finland


I personally perfer to live in a lie, and think its our true national Hymn. Its better this way.


I like this nightwish version too. Actually love it. Some say its a disgrace for the hymn, some say its better than medicore sex.. All we know is, its called the Finlandia :
