Which artist or band do you most associate with the Vietnam War?
I always think of CCR - Creedence Clearwater Revival - when I think of Vietnam...how about you?
I think of a few, but most notably I think of John Lennon and Bob Dylan. Their message was clear in their songs. As far as bands, it was the rock and roll war. I think of Jefferson Airplane, The Band, The Doors. Some of the greatest music came from this time period.
I also think of CCR and I agree with the ones that Rebekah mentioned. I also think of Buffalo Springfield & CSNY - Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. "For What's It's Worth" and "Ohio" from those two bands were powerful songs associated with the Vietnam War. Of course there are numerous others, and I have written about a few of them in my series of Hubs on protest songs. That time period had no shortage of socially conscious music artists who sung and wrote about the war.
I must agree with you. Creedence Clearwater always comes to mind.
Animals and Association were my favorites then. "One is the Loneliest Number" my favorite song.
Country Joe and the Fish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuUBCF3KKxc
I would have to say Country Joe and CCR are the first that come to mind for me although there was a lot of good songs during that time that you could choose from, it's hard to just choose one.
