CCR...hmm...this is a tough one. I'll have to think on it for a while.

I voted yes. I haven't listened to them in many years but Fortunate Son is one of my favorite songs and Willy and the Poor Boys one of my favorite albums. I wish I still had it.

If you don't like CCR, I don't like you.

I like CCR, but honestly, I have been totally satisfied with just their radio hits. I've never really had the urge to delve into their back catalog. Is their material worth it? That's really the only thing keeping me from clicking yes.

Absolutely. When I think of the 1960s, the Vietnam War, hippies, and all that jazz I think of 'Fortunate Son'...

I'm voting yes, mostly because these guys bring back nothing but good memories of listening to their music as a youngin'. It's the perfect road trip music really. I was always partial to "Lookin' out my Backdoor"...brings a smile to my face everytime. "Fortunate Son" is actually one of the only songs I don't like.

I said yes even though I don't know them all that well (should I have abstained?). They've become a staple of classic rock stations, and not one of the more annoying ones either.

I like them enough.... not enough into them to say i absolutely love them or anything, but I also feel they have significant relevance to the development of rock music as a genre too... so i guess i gotta go with a yes on that basis...
