    Default New Zealand has a crap national anthem

    no poll this time

    Does NZ need a new National Anthem.
    We need something with a much more positive feel, that doesnt sound 150 years out of date .
    And something that joe average can hit the notes , we arnt all Kiri Te Kanawa

    I actually like the Maori version better, as I cant understand the lyrics

    I don't think the words are too bad, just how it is played. The music is too slow, and it should really be sung by a male, not a really high pitched female voice like it's usually sung currently.

    We have a heinous anthem.

    The least could do is ditch the English version, and rename it "Taniwha,please don't eat Aotearoa (have some cash instead)"

    A crap national anthem? That's an improvement on the one we had last week, which did however match the flag for stunningly stupid.

    This is just revisiting a thread from a year ago:

    which also contained a link to Cindy Ruakere's version

    I personally see not much wrong with our national anthem except that it may be outdated. Helen Clarke was heard by me to say that New Zealand is a 'multi-religious country'. This means that not all of us are christians. Maybe other religions in this country might object to the reference to God. Remember we have to be PC.

    Yes, I think most other religions do have a god which is referred to by another name. Good point.
