Star-Spangled Banner

Today is the eightieth anniversary of the designation of The Star-Spangled Banner as the United States national anthem. Read 46 Stat. 1508, codified at 36 U.S.C. § 301, “Conduct during playing” while listening to what we think is the definitive VOCAL rendering of the tune from SCTV. Then, of course, there’s also Jimi Hendrix.
