Although with our's, it's difficult to remember the words, especially when you've had a few pre-match drinks. Then you just do the "Gwlad! Gwlad!" bit...
No it's not.

Land of Hope and Glory would be a good alternative, or Rule Britannia. Although I suspect the PC brigade would have issues with such an imperialistic tune

Yes, it has been discussed before, on the UK Forum:

The British Natinal anthem must be changed!!

The best thing about the Welsh anthem, is when an Englishman tries to sing along to it:

Not to be biased, but I think Russian is the best in the world. No other anthem can compare

hm I only know several, among the lesser known ones: the bulgarian one which has grave-like sounding, overly sad melody (i don't like it, I only like the lyrics):

As a piece of music, I guess Le Marseillaise is my favorite... But also because of this scene.
