R. Kelly's 'Ignition Remix' to be made US National Anthem?

 

Postby ludichris » Wed Mar 06, 2013 4:11 pm

A petition has been launched in the US asking the White House to adopt R Kelly's classic single 'Ignition (Remix)' as the nation's new national anthem.

As the Huffington Post reports, fans have filed the petition on the administration's website and already have 2,000 signatures from people who are eager to see R Kelly's party anthem replace 'The Star-Spangled Banner'. However, they will need 100,000 signatures by April 2 for the White House to respond to the request.

"We, the undersigned, would like the Obama administration to recognise the need for a new national anthem," says the form. "One that even a decade after its creation, is still hot and fresh out of the kitchen.

"America has changed since Francis Scott Key penned our current anthem in 1814," it continues. "Since then, we have realised that after the show, it's the afterparty, and that after the party, it's the hotel lobby, and - perhaps most importantly - that 'round about four, you've got to clear the lobby, at which point it's strongly recommended that you take it to the room and freak somebody."

It concludes: "President Obama: we ask you to recognise the evolution of this beautiful country and give us an anthem that better suits the glorious nation we have become." The petition can be signed here.

R Kelly released his 11th studio album 'Write Me Back' in June of last year. In November 2012, meanwhile, he announced plans to write a prequel book to his hip-hop opera Trapped In The Closet in addition to adapting the project into a Broadway musical.

The American National Anthem would never change, even if half the population wanted it too.

I do love Ignition though!

they shud use the whitney houston performance as their official representation of the national anthem. I'm serious. It's the best sung rendition of the song and no one will ever come close to the spirit Whitney gave the song.

when the rihanna fans get wind of this, the new anthem will probably sound something like America-ella-ella-ay!

For more old school songs, what about Simon & Garfunkel's "America" or Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA" (yes, I do realise that song contains lines criticising the USA, or more specifically its government...)

Why Ignition Remix of all songs LOL?

So if this can be the new national anthem, can My Neck, My Back by the eternal Kween Khia be the new America The Beautiful?
