I'm watching the Ken Burns series on the Vietnam War. What's the best war-related song from the era?
Country Joe- Fixin to die rag
"Give me an F... give me a U... give me a C... give me a K.... what's that spell ? ..."
Best version is live at Woodstock
War , Temptations
"Gimme Shelter" - The Rolling Stones
Won't get fooled again
Suzy-Q by the Doors
Alice's Restaurant by Arlo Guthrie
Fortunate Son - Creedence Clearwater Revival
Machine Gun - Jimi Hendrix
"Purple Haze"..... Hendrix, on the radio.....
For what it’s worth - Buffalo Springfield
Paint it black -Rolling Stones
Fortunate Son- Creedence Clearwater Revival
That song was pure rock genius.
👆🏻 that’s #1. A much lesser known but also still relevant one ‘Anti-Establishment Man’ by REO Speedwagon
What's going on - Marvin Gaye
For what it's worth - Buffalo Springfield
"We Gotta Get Out Of This Place"..... The Animals.....
19. Definitely not the best, but such a weird song.
Eve of Destruction.
White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane
That one is about a drug trip, not war.
Still an excellent song though. 👍🏻
I just associate that song with NAM
Its in all the vietnam movies so thats where I got it from.
