When The Beatles disbanded in 1970, we had a new top band in the world. This group concisted of four members, John Fogerty (lead guitar, lead vocals, harmonica) his elder brother Tom Fogerty (R.I.P.) on rhythm guitar and backing vocals, Stu Cook (bass, backing vocals) and Doug "Cosmo" Clifford (drums, percussion). They are my favorite band next to The Beatles and Queen and have inspired me to play music). They most well-known songs have to be "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?", "Fortunate Son", "Proud Mary", "Bad Moon Rising", "Down on the Corner" and "Susie Q" to mention some. The group is probably the real inventor of Swamp Rock though the band are from El Cerrito, California.
Top 10 Creedence songs:
10) Born to Move
9) Commotion
8) Proud Mary
7) Born on the Bayou
6) Fortunate Son
5) Someday Never Comes
4) Long As I Can See the Light
3) Travelin' Band
2) Wrote a Song for Everyone

Yeah, I made this non-Beatles topic late at night I was a bit tired and also had "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" on my mind, therefore I made the mistake with the Grapevine.
