The anthem is not tuneless at all - it is strong and heroic as befits the battle at Ft. McHenry when the British finally came to know they had lost and America would be free. The words tell the story. Leave it alone..it works. If singers cannot sing it well, there are many who can sing it correctly - use them. If you dislike it, treat yourself to ear plugs or, perhaps, try another country where their national song will lull you into a state of blissful complacency.. This is America, Americans are like no others. Americans formed this nation to provide its people freedoms never known throughout the world. Our government even tolerated those who seek change - that is what freedom is all about.
