PATRIOTS are angry that more young Australians know the chorus of the Daft Punk song Get Lucky than the whole national anthem.

A survey of more than 1000 people aged 18 to 29 revealed 84 per cent could sing the chorus of the hit, featuring Pharrell Williams.

Only 71 per cent of young people surveyed could recite Advance Australia Fair's second verse correctly.

Media personality Sam Kekovich said he was not surprised by the lack of patriotism shown by young Australians.

"Australia needs to come front and square. It's imperative we sing the national anthem at schools," Mr Kekovich said.

"We need to remind young people what the national anthem is about and remembering the sacrifices that Australians have made."
