    These are the ones I've heard so far. My favourites from top to bottom.

    Italy - "Il Canto degli Italiani" "The Song of the Italians"
    Russia - "Государственный гимн Российской Федерации" "State Anthem of the Russian Federation"
    Greece - "Ὕμνος εἰς τὴν Ἐλευθερίαν" "Hymn to Liberty"
    Europe - "Ode to Joy"
    Netherlands - "Wilhelmus" "'William"
    Germany - Deutschlandlied "Song of Germany"
    Denmark - "Der er et yndigt land" There is a lovely country
    France - "La Marseillaise"
    England - "God Save the Queen"
    United States of America - "The Star-Spangled Banner"
    Spain - "Marcha Real" "Royal March"


    Rate by lyric quality and melody separately or die trying.

    You shall rue this day that you decided to not post a poll in Off Topic. I'm just so disappointed right now.

    I refuse to participate in this poll-less abomination.

    I'm sorry, I shall make the appropriate, desirable changes immediately.

    NVM can't start a poll now.

    Internet forums are 99% nitpicking and you know it.

    Figured, we are able to start a poll after the creation of a thread, but can have only 10 choices, so I left Spain out.

    Marsailles wins lyrics hands down, I doubt any other hymn has that "power to the people" approach.

    Marsailles is pratically "To arms men! Never surrender, but surrender."

    Italian, Greek and Dutch Anthems have superior lyrics.

    It's stupid that there's no option in the poll to let people add their own choices like in Facebook etc. It's limited to 10 options. Plz f1x
