I don't mind hearing something different for a change. Why not? The music to the Anthem is originally based on an old ditty called "To Anacreon in Heaven" anyway. It's not like the song is sacrosanct or something.
By the way: I still crack up every time I go to a Pens game during the Anthem. During the pause right before the last line, you always hear the "LET'S GO PENS!" shout coming down from the cheap seats.
