If John Fogerty’s cease-and-desist order won’t stop President Donald Trump’s campaign from playing “Fortunate Son” at rallies, maybe a TikTok video will. (See it below.)
After an awesome introduction from his granddaughter, the 75-year-old “Creedence Clearwater Revival” frontman played his 1969 hit that slammed rich draft dodgers during the Vietnam War.
“Today with school being online, I thought I would give a history lesson,” she said. “My grandpa wrote a song called ’Fortunate Son.’ He was a veteran. It was about himself and others who were forced to go fight a war they did not support, yet around him were others of privilege and upper class who didn’t have to. My generation can’t let this happen again.
“Hit it, Grandpa!”
