Thanks to @lapinrose for the first 3 suggestions.
Very upbeat track and the Quo are definitely English. Would make a great start to a sporting event.
OK, I can't amend the poll at this point but feel free to vote for the Quo, everyone.
Rockin' ALL OVER the world? Might be a bit imperialistic for contemporary taste...we'll see.
Not sure that tossing your hair around to loud music is exactly 'imperialistic' in the usual sense of the word but it may show a global ambition to holiday in lots of places, I guess.
Billy Connolly has his own thoughts
John Cage's 4'33" would be my choice.
I've voted for Jerusalem because I love the words and the tune, and it inspires the correct level of emotion and pride. I like the way it encourages us to be better, do better, improve things for everyone in the country, as was Blake's intention. I suspect however that the phrases "Holy Lamb of God" and "Countenance divine" will render it too Christian for our multicultural times; and from my childhood, Jreusalem has seldom appeared in the news in anything but a negative context. I used to wonder, when we sang it at school, why anyone would want their own country to resemble a war zone full of people who hate each other.
You beat me to it!
Failing that Jerusalem
Are you being funny, artboy?!
(I am not Englerlish either...)
This might appeal to those with a little Englisher mentality. Lol
But you are Welsh? Strange...
Anything that isn't warbled by Jenkins would be good.
What about yet another religious number which many seem to have already adopted - Swing Low Sweet Chariot?!
I think it's about death.
If you're going to be at all martial about it might as well go the whole hog, good sing-along chorus too
Jerusalem has the disadvantage of its name, maybe it could be changed to "Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem".
I'd rather retain that as a purely rugby-based anthem
I like The Land Song.
Clear the way for liberty, the land must all be free,
Britons will not falter in the fight tho' stern it be.
'Til the flag we love so well shall wave from sea to sea,
O'er the land that's free for the people.
I'll drink to that!
Oh, now that's a great song @Mangleworzle
Drink a barrel? Of pure English spring water, I hope. We can't be seen to advocate insobriety. We are English and renowned for our good behaviour, are we not?
