Whose National Anthem Rocked Hardest? [POLL]

Top 10 Rockin' National Anthems

When thrash titans Metallica took the field at San Francisco’s AT&T Park to play “The Star Spangled Banner” last week, they were but the latest in a long line of high energy decibel dealers putting their rough stamp on our hallowed National Anthem.
