    What should be the Australian anthem and what i would love to be sung at the up coming Rugby league World cup hehe. The best national anthem that never happened! God bless Australia! was a proposed 1961 Australian national anthem by Australian songwriter Jack O'Hagan who provided patriotic lyrics to the traditional tune of Waltzing Matilda. I like it, i like it a lot. What ya reckon?

    Advance Australia Fair sucks and needs to be changed but not to that song either. Also I don't get everybody's obsession with waltzing Matilda, i would hate it to be the national anthem

    He's not alien. He's all ours.

    You should ask @Saintsified about his views on same sex marriage.

    Waltzing Matilday every day and twice on Sunday.

    The fact it is about a sheep humping crim just makes it even better imo.

    Not even the Wobblies attempting to ruin it back jn their heydey is enough to poisjn it imo.

    Mate I've spent the last couple of days arguing with a bloke that makes you seem rational on the subject.

    No way am I getting into another debate. I'm spent.

    We can update the anthem at the same time as we become a republic and update the flag

    Are you f**king serious?

    A song sung by some f**khead born in Scotland about the Vietnam War.

    Why not suggest the US change their anthem to Orchestral Manoueveres in the Dark's "Enola Gay" if you want to glorify war?

    "Dorothy The Dinosaur" by The Wiggles would be a better choice.
