    I grew up in the Rust Belt where everybody’s father was a WW2 or Korean War veteran. The counterculture crap didn’t fly. Country music was pretty much the anchor that held conservatism together. Most latched onto Merle Haggards “Okie From Muskogee” as an anthem to support the Vietnam “Conflict” and kickin butts on campus. Thing is Not long after Haggard releases it in 1969 he started to not believe himself. Then he realized, it was a parody on the hypocrisy of the supporters of the Vietnam War. When the Grateful Dead started including it in their sets.....well the ship sailed.

    Nothing really stands out, but the raucousness of Somebody to Love by Jefferson Airplane would have to be a contender.
