Best Anthems.

Philidelphia and Chicago does a great job with the anthems, watching the Kings @ Hawks game made me remember how well their anthem singer sings it and how awesome the crowd @ United center is when they cheer during the whole thing... Very unique imo.

Agree/ Disagree? any different ideas on who's better?
come at me bro.

That guy singing the anthem at the Hawks game today was epic. Dougie Allen is great for the Sabres. I like anyone that just sings it and doesn't try jazzing it up. I find most women anthem singers to be horrid to be honest.

I hate the anthem in Chicago.

The cheering from the audience ruins it.

I like the Jets anthems when they yell true north during it. Seems unique

Saw the Chicago anthem today on NBC for the first time.

I thought it was AWFUL. And I cannot capitalize awful enough to emphasize how bad it really was, completely overdone and ruined it.

Your opinion is wrong.

Chicago anthem singer > all. He gave me a [Mod]...and I'm Canadian.

Nashville has a different singer almost every game. What other teams do this?

I hate anthems, but the "TRUE NORTH" is sweet.

Disagree strongly. Reflection of patriotism (they honor a vet on the ice during it every game as well) and it's a fantastic atmosphere.

Sorry, but the very notion of an opinion is that it is impossible to be wrong. You can disagree, but it cannot be wrong.

Really dislike arenas where the crowd yells out one of the words for emphasis during the song (e.g. 'Red")

I do like when the singer sometimes stops and you can hear the audience singing the anthem. I think Calgary does this every game, no?

The Sabres have have an 8 year old girl signing recently. Crazy the amount of confidence and vocal power and soul coming out of a little 8 year old girl.

sorry for the bad video, but it was the best audio of her. Taken from today's nationally televised game with the Pens. She did the Canadian anthem right before this and was excellent.

I also am not a fan of the cheering during the national anthem. I think it's a fine tradition and Hawks fans obviously love it, but I just can't get into it.

Here is a video of Charles Glenn singing the National Anthem (it's at a Rams game, but he does(did?) most Blues games). He's a magnificent singer. Also, I love screaming BLUES at the top of my lungs at the end of the anthem over the word brave.

You're thinking of Vancouver.

I for one can't stand what they do in Chicago but it may have something to do with not being able to stand Chicago at all. The life of a Canucks fan.

Does Jim Cornelison still doing an anthems for the Hawks? He was god awful.

Oh and while I do love Star Spangled Banner, I will always be jealous of Canadians and their superior national anthem.

Hawks is the best, not opinion...fact.

I caught the girl singing the national anthem at the Sabres game today. Man is she good, real good, and for an 8 year old girl.

I believe Dallas and Washington did this for many years before (shouting out certain parts of the anthem)...
