As long as Carl Lewis and Roseanne exist, it will be difficult to produce the worst Star Spangled Banner performance at a sporting event.

But, to a lot of people, the rock band Madison Rising made a strong case.  Billed as "America's Most Patriotic Rock Band" Madison Rising performed the Star Spangled Banner at Saturday's NASCAR Nationwide Series race in Daytona, Florida.

Watch it.


For the most part, everybody keeps it together.  But, at about the 1:53 mark, driver Brad Keselowski looks amused.  After the performance, everybody started talking about it.

The band released a statement.  Apparently, their version has been around for about 18 months.  Their official video of the song has over 5 million views on YouTube.


So there.

What do you think?
