Is it just my mood this morning, or is this a truly inspirational fresh take on our national anthem from a younger generation? They call themselves Madison Rising. If their lead singer looks like just a typical long haired rocker, know this: He's a decorated veteran having served in the U.S. Navy for four years as an 8404 FMF corpsman for 2nd battalion 2nd marines. He's the real deal.

I don't typically like when artists play with and re-interpret the Star Spangled Banner, but their version along with the video gave me chills.

You can see the video below.
