The United States Space Force has debuted its official song – and based on the Internet reactions, it is not all that great. Space Force debuted its official theme song "Semper Supra" (meaning "Always Above" in Latin) during the Air, Space and Cyber Conference in Maryland this week, and like just about anything to do with the Space Force, social media went in on the matter, with very few favorable replies to speak of.
You can read the lyrics to Space Force's "Semper Supra" anthem below... then be sure to stay for the replies from online
We're the mighty watchful eye,
Guardians beyond the blue,
The invisible front line,
Warfighters brave and true.
Boldly reaching into space,
There's no limit to our sky.
Standing guard both night and day,
We're the Space Force from on high.
Here's the Story on That

Can You Make it and EVIL Theme Song?
General Turgid Poindexter: I’m loving the work on the space force song so far. But I have one piece of guidance, can we make the first line creepy and evil? pic.twitter.com/nhx1LRjkH8— Michael Stahlke (@MichaelStahlke) September 20, 2022

Our Favorite Watchful Eye
I'm sorry, "mighty watchful eye??"
Also, "sempra supra" sounds wayyyyy too much like "sectumsempra," a curse from Harry PotterSeptember 20, 2022
If there is a comparison to be made between you and Sauron in Lord of the Rings... it's never good.prevnext
Still Not Believing In This
I refuse to believe the Space Force is even real. It’s just an elaborate grift for DOD contractors.— The Dude 🇺🇸 (@JurisDudence) September 20, 2022
Some people are still not believing that the US Space Force is anything but a viral marketing ploy for the Space Force Netflix series.prevnext
Still Feels Like Parody
One day something about Space Force will be easily distinguishable from parody but today is not that day. https://t.co/Q6Ml1F57Ka— snow🌻 (@snowmanomics) September 20, 2022
Some people are willing to accept Space Force is real – a real parody of the actual armed services.prevnext

This Is Too Much Even for an '80s Movie
Oh... dear god. However cheesy you think this is going to be, you're wrong. If it was in a madcap 1980s movie about a hapless space force that accidentally starts a war with aliens shaped like giant kittens, probably starring William Shatner, it'd still be too on the nose. https://t.co/dkb6bFmZdM— Michael Marshall Smith (@ememess) September 20, 2022
Seriously, if we all heard this song playing for a fictional movie army, we'd make fun of the screenwriters.prevnext
Upon Second Listen...
I have to say, that new Space Force theme is straight _fire_. pic.twitter.com/rHFzr9XpnY— Greg Greene (@ggreeneva) September 20, 2022
