4. Yep. Doesn't take anything away from the cute little tater tots, of course...
Their performance is most excellent.

6. Sorry. This is really creepy...
I can just see this little prosti-tot quintet giving woodies to evangelicals in the mega-churches sing "God Bless The USA".

:puke:

13. Um...What?
Five little girls dressed modestly, singing our national anthem in a fairly traditional way...and you consider that a "prosti-tot quintet"?

That doesn't make any sense at all.

15. My Favorite is still the Dixie Chicks...
At the Superbowl, less than two months before the launch of the War in Iraq.

(It was the only Superbowl I'd ever really ever paid attention to. I am from Tampa, and for as long as I could remember the running gag was that the only way the Buccaneers could ever go to the Superbowl, would be if they bought tickets.)

Anyway, the Dixie Chicks were amazing, and it wasn't long after that they suffered the redneck rampage for speaking out against W. It made me want to listen to their recording even more.. It was my little thought crime, and I cherished it.

18. Usually when I hear SSB at a ballgame I want to throw up...
The renditions are so horrible- But this one actually gave me goosebumps. You just never hear it sung well anymore, so this was quite the rare treat.

Shame I was too late to rec this.

19. Very Cool! -- and it happened in my hometown no less!
A fine representation of America and a fine representation of Lubbock, Texas Tech and the South Plains area....
