"Unofficial anthem"[edit]

I'm not sure that it is appropriate to label Waltzing Matilda as an "Unofficial Anthem". My own composition of the tune from Airwolf could be considered unofficial. The tune certainly has a national presence, and would be a favourite to become the next anthem if a change was needed. Move it to an "Australian Folk Songs" registry perhaps?

I don't think this article should be placed in this category, as it only covers "offical" national anthems.

Sheet Music[edit]

Anyone know where on earth, other than McPherson original, to find sheet music for this?
