Good news or bad news depending on which side of the aisle you claim as your own. Gov.

Madison Rising, "America's most patriotic band" (at least according to them) performed the national anthem at Saturday's Daytona opener. They made it their own for sure, and a lot of people did not care for the way in which it was performed.

Are people going nuts every time an R&B singer is throwing notes all over the place? I haven't really seen this much public reaction to a performance of the anthem in, well, ever. What did you think?
