    Have heard a few suggestions over the years and, while there have been some good ones, this one seems to resonate for me :cool:
    So if we were to pick a "new" song for the nation, how do we think this one rates?
    Feel free to drop in your own recommendations, could be interesting to see what people think (likes count as votes :D)

    And for perspective, the other side of Waltzing Matilda (sensational version by an Irish Band...sort of fitting given Australia's heritage :cool:)

    I'd renounce my Aust citizenship if "True Blue" was our national anthem. God knows how many sporting events have been ruined by this mug and his song being played pre game.

    Leave the anthem as is.....but I will give an honourable mention to the Rai Thistlethwayte / Lo Tel version of "I am Australian" (done as an ad for Telstra from memory)...only cos it'd be the first "rock n roll" national anthem...Sure would change up the tone of the gold medal ceremony at an Olympic games. :D
