Hear John Fogerty isolated vocals on Creedence Clearwater Revival “Fortunate Son”:
This 1969 song from their fourth studio album Willy and the Poor Boys became an anti-war movement anthem. A big expressive symbol of the counterculture’s opposition to U.S. the Vietnam war.
The song reached #14 on the United States charts on November 22, 1969, the week before Billboard changed its methodology on double-sided hits. The tracks combined to climb to #9 the next week, on the way to peaking at #3 three more weeks later, on 20 December 1969.
Pitchfork Media placed it at number 17 on its list of “The 200 Greatest Songs of the 1960s”. Rolling Stone placed it at #99 on its “500 Greatest Songs of All Time” list. In 2013, the song was added to the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”
