Esteemed Faith No More frontman Mike Patton will be singing the Star Spangled Banner during the National Football League playoff game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Los Angeles Rams. The game takes place in Los Angeles, and the winner of the game will face either the New Orleans Saints or Philadelphia Eagles. Here are Madness To Creation’s Top 5 Most Memorable National Anthem moments!
- Whitney Houston’s National Anthem performance at Super Bowl 25. Who can forget this moment? This moment was powerful and fitting considering the Persian Gulf War was going on in 1991 and there was a sense of unity that filled the stadium. Oh yeah, and the New York Giants beat the Buffalo Bills 20-19.
2. The somber National Anthem between the New York Mets and Miami Marlins. The way the band played the National Anthem offered this overwhelmingly somber feeling because this was the first game that the Marlins played after their pitcher Jose Fernandez was killed in that boating accident. Even SNY announcers Gary Cohen, Ron Darling, and Keith Hernandez all broke down afterwards.
3. Carl Lewis aka Francis Scott off key. Who can forget this one? It sure got Charley Steiner of ESPN’s SportCenter to crack up! He sang this before the basketball game between the Chicago Bulls and New Jersey Nets. Michael Jordan even had a hard time holding it in.
4. Fergie “performing” the Star Spangled Banner at the 2018 NBA All Star Game. This was so bad that it ruined her career. When Draymond Green, LeBron James, and Kevin Durant are all laughing at your Jessica Rabbit performance, it’s time to hang it up.
5. Roseanne Barr “singing” the National Anthem before a baseball game. She didn’t necessarily sing it, but she screeched it. OMG this is bad!
