Maybe because of the racist undertones in the song. Neil Young wrote a song called Southern man that called for white men in the south, to be Christians and stop racism. Among other things "sweet home Alabama" has the line "i hope Neil young will remember, that southern man don't need him around"

Petition for it. The Scottish national anthem (Oh Flower O' Scotland) is a relatively modern song, which replaced the older "Scotland the Brave", due to popular opinion.

The positive reference to controversial Governor Wallace makes it politically incorrect when one considers the large Black population in the state.

Because a great song would become staid overnight, if it became the official song of AL.
