Let me start out by saying this, the National Anthem should be respected and celebrated.  I can respect the song, but that doesn't mean I have to agree with the performance.

Take the band known as Madison Rising for example.


They've credited themselves as 'America's Most Patriotic Band'.  Whoa! With THAT kind of credentials, they HAVE to perform the National Anthem at the Daytona 500!


Indeed, they did in fact perform a hard rock version of the National Anthem, and it got weird.


The lead signer starts singing at :31, it starts getting ridiculous at 1:28, and you can see drivers smirking at 1:47 and 1:58
