Semper Supra: The Space Force Song

America's newest military branch, Space Force, has unveiled their official song. The title is "Semper Sutra," meaning "always above." That is also the US Space Force motto. It sounds as if John Philip Souza had written a TV sitcom theme. It turns out that I am not the only one who thinks so.

Semper Supra is set to a jaunty tune reminiscent of The Liberty Bell, another Sousa march, from 1893 but now widely known as the theme to the British comedy series Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

The reception on the internet has not been kind. Air Force chief of staff Gen. Charles "CQ" Brown Jr. said, "I'm sure it will grow on us." Metafilter suggests many other songs that would have been better. What do you think?

The reception on the internet has not been kind
As a person who's been on the internet since 1994, I can tell you, never judge anything on what the Internet has to say. Everything I've ever purchased on Amazon has had scathing reviews, and yet none of the things said were actually true. Yeah, I'm saying most of the people online are insane.
