Creedence Clearwater Revival/YMMV
Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
- Award Snub: The band was never even nominated for a Grammy.
- Covered Up: Their rendition of "Suzie Q" is by far more widely known than the original by Dale Hawkins. In reverse, their song "Proud Mary" was Covered Up by Ike & Tina Turner.
- Fogerty had a minor solo hit with "Rockin' All Over The World". Then Status Quo covered it...
- Ear Worm: Most of their songs, though probably "Bad Moon Rising," "Proud Mary" and "Down on the Corner" most of all.
- Epic Riff: "Suzie Q," "Fortunate Son," "Green River," "Up Around the Bend." An acoustic riff can be heard in "Who'll stop the Rain?"
- Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory: "Bad Moon Rising" is about the apocalypse.
- Face of the Band: John Fogerty
- Sweet Dreams Fuel: The song "Lookin' Out My Back Door" is probably their best example of a feel good song. It's just so damn happy you can't help but smile when you listen to it.
- Plenty of fans loved the trippy lyrics and wondered what Fogerty must have been on when he wrote them. It's really just a cute song he made for his kids.
- Vindicated by History: Thank you, Forrest Gump!
