    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.

      The Airplane, definitely. And the Doors "The End" was used in Apocalypse Now. Great music for sure.

    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.

      I just had to play one of their CDs on the weekend...I guess they were on my mind because I watched Platoon the other night.

    Animals and Association were my favorites then. "One is the Loneliest Number" my favorite song.

    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.
