The Fray sang the National Anthem before Monday’s NCAA Championship Game between Kentucky and Kansas, and let’s just say it was very “Fray-like”, which isn’t exactly traditional. I thought it was still respectful, others disagree. What do you think?

“Upon thinking about it, doing the National Anthem is a bit like choosing between Jif and Skippy. You just can’t please everyone,” guitarist Dave Welsh wrote on the band’s Twitter page following the performance.

Most of the reviews have been less than flattering for the band. The Washington Post said it was ”a version that made you want to curl up in the corner and drunk text an ex.”

While that may seem harsh, it was probably one of the better reviews.

EW compared it to “The Rainbow Connection”, and not in a good way.

Contact Music thought it was up there with the worst ever.

And Crushable said it was bad form to bring a tambourine to the NCAA finals.

Now, you have your say…
