The National Anthem Video We'll Be Playing Before Every Liveglog

| | Comments (13)

Via the good folks at Big League Stew, we bring you Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready's rendition of the National Anthem prior to last night's Mariners game. Jimi Hendrix would approve:


If only my New York Yankees could be so creative with the anthem performance of each game instead of digging up the 35-year-old audiotape of late opera singer Robert Merrill's otherwise great performance. It gets old. So does Kate Smith's "God Bless America". New York is the greatest city in the world with the best arts scene around...recruit someone to do it live!

I hope Dan Deacon is available.

Animal Collective too.

In the poll at the end of the clip, more FSNW viewers think Heart is a better band than Alice in Chains and Soundgarden combined.

SEATTLE FANS GETS DESERVE EVERY SINGLE OUNCE OF MISERY THAT THEIR TEAMS PROVIDE THEM

What about when Heart and Alice in Chains performed together at some benefit a couple years ago?

MegaBoner for Seattle.

Red River?

Why was Sir Mix-A-Lot left off of that poll at the end of the clip?

Heart is in the pantheon of rock. Alice in Chains and Soundgarden are merely in the pantheon of bands that my friends played in their cars on the way to the diner in the 90s.

It was some tribute to Heart, all I really remember is Phil Anselmo from Pantera singing Into the Flood Again with AiC and it being terrible

Also, your math is fuzzy, Honeynut.

My memory was fuzzy, it was Would that was terrible.

Why were The Presidents of The United States of America left off of that poll at the end of the clip?

Rob, I'm not above fuzzy numbers if it makes my points more salient.

Plus, I heard the margin of error was +/- 8%. So, you know.

Well, I guess I have to get my Soundgarden Subpop "S" tattoo removed and replaced with a Heart one.
