New York, NY – -(Ammoland.com)- Best selling patriotic rock band, Madison Rising woke up this morning to hundreds of complaints from angry fans complaining that their postings of the band’s best selling rendition of the Star Spangled Banner had been deleted from Facebook over the past 24 hours.

What started as complaints from a handful of fans escalated onto a barrage of anger after the band posted a message asking if anyone else had experienced this same problem.

“I’m not sure why this would happen,” Said band manager, Richard Mgrdechian. “Of all things, to delete such a beautiful and reverent version of the Star Spangled Banner is beyond comprehension. I hope it’s just a technical glitch, but something larger seems to be at work.”

Facebook typically deletes postings flagged as spam by large numbers of users. It would be an unusual, though certainly not unprecedented move for the company to intentionally delete a post across the board.

The band asks anyone else who has experienced this problem to please email as much information as possible to [email protected] .

Madison Rising released its widely acclaimed version of the Star Spangled Banner last summer, updated with a special addendum to reflect our nation’s struggles at the dawn of the 21st century. In conjunction with that release, the band launched the Star Spangled Banner Challenge (http://www.starspangledbannerchallenge.com) to offer Americans a fun and meaningful way to show their patriotism by watching the video and downloading the song directly to their iPods and other devices to play proudly in their cars, at the gym, at the beach or anywhere else they want.

With nearly 4 million views on YouTube, the band is well on its way to achieving its goal of five million views by July 4th.

“Awesome,” “deeply moving,” “amazing,” “chilling,” and “the best ever,” are just some of the superlatives used to describe the band’s rendition of the song that celebrates what being an American is all about. In addition to all of the accolades, the band has received thousands of messages from fans calling for them to perform at Super Bowl XLVIII next year as well as at NASCAR events and a plethora of other major venues around the country.

Madison Rising promotes the principles of liberty, independence, smaller government and personal responsibility. Their mission is not only to make great music, but to also send a message that American culture is alive and well. Madison Rising is currently recording its second album and actively touring around the country. To book the band for live performances such as music festivals, sporting events, corporate events or welcome home parties for those serving overseas, please contact Madison Rising at booking(at)madisonrising(dot)com.

salute, gives me chills. no need for politics here, face book does a diservice for such censorship.


Perhaps the greatest tribute would include the last stanza of the Star Spangled Banner:

O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand Between their lov’d home and the war’s desolation! Blest with vict’ry and peace may the heav’n rescued land Praise the power that hath made and preserv’d us a nation! Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, And this be our motto – “In God is our trust,” And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

This is the first time I heard this. It makes me proud. I revere this song, it is a part of me. I hate when it is done poorly, abused bu “artists” who think they can do it better only to screw it up. This was well done and well sung though a little coarse in a few parts. It is still MY SONG and I love it. Do not forget your roots, do not forget where you come from, and get rid of elite owned politicians who no longer work “For The People”. Be an American and stand for… Read more »

Downing Obummer& his crooked administration and their shennanigans! Its bull s$%t if they did pull this song but wouldnt put it past anything on the internet because of Furher Obama lovers!

I got rid of that infestation a long time ago and greatly reduced the malware and spam my computer was being hit with. And it is a very liberal organization. Get rid of it and urge others to do the same. And let their advertisers know because that is their life blood – advertiser $$.


I removed my Facebook account a long time ago. Facebook is SO leftist and PRO-obama that it smells really bad. Nothing pisses me off more than someone else telling me what is right-speech and what is not!


The time is long past to pull your facebook accounts! I yanked mine when many gun related accounts were disabled several months ago. The evidence is clear that facebook has an ObamaNostra-like anti-American agenda! Close and delete your facebook accounts today!!
