* A ''Series/{{Victorious}}'' episode has Tori singing the Star Spangled Banner at a college basketball game and all her friends warn her not to forget the lyrics since it would be a NeverLiveItDown moment for her. When Tori sings it, she doesn't mess up the words, but the school's mascot, a large St. Bernard, ends up dragging her across the stadium halfway through the song.

* In RugbyUnion tests, Ireland's national team sings "Ireland's Call", an anthem written specifically for them, as the team represents both Northern Ireland[[note]]for whom the national anthem would be "God Save the Queen", as it is part of the UK[[/note]] and the Republic of Ireland[[note]]whose national anthem is ''Amhrán na bhFiann'', whose English-language title is "The Soldier's Song"[[/note]]. In countries where rugby is popular but other contact with Ireland is infrequent, such as "the Tri Nations" of South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, "Ireland's Call" is often confused for Ireland's national anthem.

** The fact that "The Star-Spangled Banner" wasn't adopted until 1931 may very well be why certain American sporting events founded before then, such as the Kentucky Derby and the Indianapolis 500, are well known for including their ''state'' anthems in their ceremonies to this day.

* Series/CandidCamera once did a prank where they set up a fake Canadian border crossing in the middle of nowhere in the United States, and then proceeded to harass victims who happen to use that road into singing "O Canada" (which of course, since the road is used by Americans, many don't even know the lyrics to), among other things.

** In 1968, Music/ArethaFranklin was invited to sing the anthem at a televised baseball game. She turned it into a gospel hymn in a long, loose rubato style with plenty of melismatic improvisation. This was at the height of UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar and the UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement, and "patriotic Americans" were furious at what they saw as sacrilege in the name of leftist, Black Power and anti-war subversion of [[Film/DrStrangelove our precious bodily fluids]]. Someone even wrote an outraged letter to ''TV Guide''. It was just Aretha being Aretha. She did it again in 2016 at a Lions-Vikings game, stretched it out to almost five minutes, and both teams had to repeat their warmup.

** Also in 1968, Music/JoseFeliciano was asked to sing the anthem at Game 5 of the Cardinals/Tigers World series. As a blind Puerto Rican American, Feliciano took this very seriously and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1ZQawbo4Mo his version]] was intended as grateful, thoughtful, even dreamlike. There were no cheers from the stands, just booing and ominous rumbling. "Real, patriotic" Americans were outraged. Most record stores stopped selling his records, and most radio stations stopped playing him. But an unauthorized recording actually hit the ''Billboard'' charts and sold over 50,000 copies in Detroit alone. On October 14, 2012, Feliciano [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38gfeGjrN1s once again sang the anthem]] at the NLCS, and this time no one booed.
