“I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo.”
~Bangladesh’s National Anthem, Basically
For the past few weeks we’ve been looking at various National Anthems, and judging their lyrics in our own judgey way. We started off with those anthems that we deemed to be particularly “metal” because that’s by far the most fun thing to read, but there are all sorts of National Anthems out there. Some are origin stories. Some are proud. Some are, meh, boring (sup Canada).
But, notably, a lot are surprisingly depressing. Let’s all get sad together, shall we?
