The rendition by Whitney was epic, but..........

This has become one of my new favorites. The louder the better! I mean -- it freakin rocks! :D

It's a matter of preference, but I think this version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBt_pVthgBY) by Béla Fleck and the Flecktones is my favorite.

My preference is to the traditional version, whoever sings it. This song is very meaningful, and I prefer that it not be "personalized" or turned into a long drawn out version, but performed with the honor it deserves.

Agreed. As noted, this is my favorite “non” traditional version (that I’ve heard) ;)

In fairness, the version I posted is playing only the third verse.

That one was good... and probably appeals to a lot of people but my personal preference will be on the purer side

This one...(though it is tarnished by an image of clinton....)

I'm pretty sure nothing else even comes close to this version.

Oh yeah! Forgot about that one... history teacher introduced that version by Hendrix back in Junior high. Definitely a Historic version though I doubt any version similar or anywhere near as radical as this one will be played at any significant events (sporting or otherwise)....

never mind...(I'm putting the coffee down now)
