{{#invoke:Infobox|infobox}} The original Argentine National Anthem (Spanish: Himno Nacional Argentino{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}) was named Marcha Patriótica{{#invoke:Category handler|main}} (Patriotic March), later renamed Canción Patriótica Nacional{{#invoke:Category handler|main}} (National Patriotic Song), and then Canción Patriótica{{#invoke:Category handler|main}} (Patriotic Song). It has been called Himno Nacional Argentino since it was published with that name in 1847. Its lyrics were written by the Buenos Aires-born politician Vicente López y Planes and the music was composed by the Spanish musician Blas Parera.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref> The work was adopted as the sole official song on May 11, 1813, three years after the May Revolution; May 11 is therefore Anthem Day in Argentina.

Some first, quite different, anthems were composed from 1810; a version was then introduced in 1813 which was used throughout the nineteenth century. The present, much shorter, anthem comprises only the first and last verses and the chorus of the 1813 Patriotic March, omitting much emotional text about the struggle for independence from Spain (with strong arms they tear to pieces the arrogant Iberian lion).
