* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' of Creator/AAPessimal, the national anthem assigned to the {{Expy}} of UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica is a thinly disguised version of Bok van Blerk's ''Afrikanerhart'' anthem. It isn't an ''official'' anthem on either world. But people moved to sing it put real passion into the words. More than they do into the ''official'' anthem. [[note]] go [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEK4YfeE5e4&index=1&list=PLIa36ETako3MaZaw7-I0qEuflOniBvTWd here]] for a listen. The translation from Afrikaans isn't brilliant but you get a general idea.[[/note]]

* While Scotland and Wales have their own official national anthems, England lacks one. Quite often it is assumed that Edward Elgar's ''Pomp and Circumstance Number One'' (with words, ''Land Of Hope And Glory'') is England's anthem. It isn't. Similarly, the musical setting of William Blake's ''Jerusalem'' is sung with enough passion by organisations as disparate as the Labour Party, the Womens' Institute, and at England's rugby union fixtures, for it to be a valid contender. It isn't, either.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
