30. The 1969 album 'Willie and the Poor Boys' included the song that came in at Number Eight in the poll. Which group are responsible for this version of John Fogerty's song 'Fortunate Son'?
From Quiz Songs of Protest: Top Ten from 'Rolling Stone'
Answer: Creedence Clearwater Revival
'Fortunate Son' was written to criticize the fact that the elite of society, who are often vocal in their declarations of patriotism, are not the ones who bear the actual costs of war, either by way of actually fighting or in financial terms. Some have seen it as being anti-military, but Fogerty did not intend it that way. He has said in interviews that, as a former member of the Army Reserve, he wanted to see more support of the needs of the individual soldiers who are engaged in active combat (or in peacekeeping missions). 'Fortunate Son' has been covered many times, and is also frequently performed in concert. A notable instance of this was the 2014 Concert for Valor in Washington, D.C., where it was performed by Bruce Springsteen, Dave Grohl and Zac Brown, drawing criticism from those who saw it as being an anti-military statement.
"Some folks are born, made to wave the flag
Ooo, they're red, white and blue
And when the band plays "Hail to the Chief"
Ooo, they point the cannon at you, Lord
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no senator's son, son
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one, no."
