About the song
Bad Moon Rising is one of the most iconic songs by the American rock band Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR). Released in 1969, the song was inspired by a scene from the film The Devil and Daniel Webster, in which a hurricane destroys a town. The song’s lyrics reflect the turbulent social and political climate of the late 1960s, as well as the personal fears of the songwriter John Fogerty. The song has a catchy melody and a driving rhythm that contrast with its ominous message of impending doom. The song was a huge hit, reaching number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and becoming one of CCR’s signature songs. The song has been covered by many artists, such as Ike and Tina Turner, Emmylou Harris, and Bruce Springsteen. The song has also been featured in several movies and TV shows, such as An American Werewolf in London, The Big Chill, and Supernatural.
