    It is an anti-USA song apparently.

    Led Zepplin and Bob Marley is the only music my Dad introduced to me that I like. My dad is a Dead Head. There was no typical classic rock in my house growing up only hippy music from my Dad and New Wave from my Mom.

    Man so many to chose from. I grew up listening to my parents playing a lot of this. My Dad is a Brown Water Navy vet. My Grandad was there in MACV but I don't think Sinatra (his fav) is what we are discussing lol.

    Ken Burns documentary "The Vietnam War" has a pretty good playlist

    Disc 1

    1. A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall – Bob Dylan
    2. Hello Vietnam – Johnnie Wright
    3. It’s My Life – The Animals
    4. Eve Of Destruction – Barry Mcguire
    5. Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is A Season) – The Byrds
    6. Masters Of War – The Staple Singers
    7. Mustang Sally – Wilson Pickett
    8. Smokestack Lightnin’ – Howlin’ Wolf
    9. Backlash Blues – Nina Simone
    10. The Sound Of Silence – Simon & Garfunkel
    11. One Too Many Mornings – Bob Dylan
    12. Ain’t Too Proud To Beg – The Temptations
    13. Are You Experienced? – The Jimi Hendrix Experience
    14. I’m A Man – The Spencer Davis Group
    15. Green Onions – Booker T And The Mg’s
    16. Strange Brew – Cream
    17. Waist Deep In The Big Muddy (Live) – Pete Seeger
    18. A Whiter Shade Of Pale – Procol Harum
    19. The Lord Is In This Place – Fairport Convention
    20. For What It’s Worth – Buffalo Springfield


    Disc 2


    1. Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right — Bob Dylan
    2. Piece Of My Heart — Big Brother & The Holding Company
    3. Magic Carpet Ride — Steppenwolf
    4. The Letter — The Box Tops
    5. Bad Moon Rising — Creedence Clearwater Revival
    6. Soul Sacrifice — Santana
    7. Tell The Truth — Otis Redding
    8. Okie From Muskogee — Merle Haggard
    9. The Thrill Is Gone — B.B. King
    10. Psychedelic Shack — The Temptations
    11. Ohio — Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
    12. Get Together — The Youngbloods
    13. Gimme Shelter — The Rolling Stones
    14. Tail Dragger — Link Wray
    15. America The Beautiful — Ray Charles
    16. What’s Going On — Marvin Gaye
    17. Bridge Over Troubled Water — Simon & Garfunkel
    18. Let It Be — The Beatles


    I say you could add all the soundtracks from decent VN war movies like Hamburger Hill and FMJ along with the no so decent like Platoon etc and then add a few from Forest Gump to the above and it would cover it pretty well.

    Since we're on the subject of song symbolism, Lynyrd Skynrd's Saturday Night Special is unmistakably an anti-gun song. As for as VN era songs, Buffalo Springfield's most famous song is definitely an anti-war song but is forever associated with VN.

    Exactly. Or at least how I remember it.

    I learned very early as a young rocker in my teens to ignore everything entertainers say or do outside of their craft. You can take the most profound lyricist and expert musician off stage and let them rant about life, politics, society, et al and they will demonstrate time and time again that they are nothing more than blathering idiots infatuated with their own sense of self-importance and entitlement. I've chosen to completely isolate myself from EVERYTHING outside their recorded music. I won't even watch music videos. I keep my exposure to them as bare-bones pure as that. It keeps my enjoyment level up, and disappointment level down because as soon as they start running their sucks you're ALWAYS seriously disappointed, although never surprised. I strongly recommend that stance on Rock music.

    John Fogerty and Bruce Springsteen are best of friends and Fogerty is in-fact anti 2nd amendment.. so birds of a feather and all that.

    (I just finished reading John Fogerty's book, $3.97 on closeout)
