Franz's 'Take Me Out' and the New Year's Eve perrenial are featured on a new list of 12 finalists for the honor of Scotland's favorite song, joining tunes by the Proclaimers, Deacon Blue and Wet Wet Wet. The competition also features Wings' 'Mull of Kintyre,' Rod Stewart's 'Maggie May' and the traditional national anthem, 'Flower of Scotland.'

Still, the list is lacking. Much as the Scots would probably like to, it's hard to ignore the tartan-clad Bay City Rollers, who could only have been more Scottish if Sean Connery were their manager. Teenage Fanclub? The Average White Band? Somewhere, the world's biggest Nazareth fan is threatening to shove yer granny.
