This being a World Cup year, and just because the Spurs... I mean, England are playing Croatia this afternoon's semi-final...
I'm surprised how few Brits realize what us Yanks have done to their national anthem (ex-pats excepting, that is, @maratsade). It's either that or they simply refuse to take the bait.

LOL, that's funny. From what I remember being told, it's a very old melody, a folk melody even, so it has no copyright. America used it for a very nice hymn/anthem/song.
And to mock King George.
