It’s arguably the better summer anthem (at least, according to Teen readers), but does “Party in the U.S.A.” have what it takes to be the song of the nation? Miley Cyrus‘ fans apparently think so…

In a request on We the People, which “provides a new way to petition the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues facing our country,” under the categories Arts and Humanities, Firearms and Human Rights, the 20-year-old’s Smilers urge President Obama to change the United States National Anthem from “The Star-Spangled Banner” to the former Hannah Montana star’s 2009 hit single because, according to them, “It is what is best for this country.”

According to the site, “If a petition gets enough support, White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.” Enough support meaning 100,000 signatures. So far, the aforementioned has garnered around 300, so Miley’s fans have their work cut out for them if they want to make the August 1 deadline.
