This year marks the 200th anniversary for the song. The anthem came together back in September 1814 when Francis Scott Key's poem was set to a 1770s british melody by John Stafford Smith. However "the star-spangled banner" wasn't declared the nation's official anthem until 1931 by an act of congress.
