Australians do you think the National Anthem should be changed from "Advance Australia Fair"?
Personally I think it should be changed to " I am Australian" with maybe different verses but same chorus. So do you think it should be changed?

I do think it should be changed but to something like Waltzing Matilda, not I Am Australian. The less formal the song sounds the better. Australians don't feel patriotic to some orchestra tune, the anthem would have a much bigger impact if it was something you could sing at the Boxing Day Test during the Ashes or whenever we're in the Olympics or something. I don't know. Just my opinion.

Adam Hills once sang our current national anthem to the tune of Working Class Man by Cold Chisel.
I think thats what our anthem should be. It sounded awesome.

Our national anthem should be the song "Down Under", but then again we did lose vegemite. :(
