A weary nation can finally turn a new page today. Aaron Lewis — lead singer of late 90s Nu-Metal band Staind — has asked forgiveness for screwing up the lyrics to the National Anthem at the World Series last night. His issued the apology on his website:
All I can say is I’m sorry and ask for the Nation’s forgiveness. My nerves got the best of me and I am completely torn up about what happened. America is the greatest country in the world. The Star-Spangled Banner means so much to so many, including myself. I hope everyone can understand the intensity of the situation and my true intent of this performance. I hope that the Nation, Major League Baseball and the many fans of our national pastime can forgive me.
