As Soon As You Hear The National Anthem refers to a snowclone parodying National Anthem defenders in the #TakeAKnee debate. The snowclone begins, “I might lose followers over this, but it needs to be said. I find it extremely disrespectful when people don’t stand for the national anthem.” It then states “As soon as you hear X, you better be out of your fucking seat” with X replaced with various humorous lyrics.
