Creedence Clearwater Revival - Bad Moon Rising

Bad Moon Rising by Creedence Clearwater Revival Song Info

"Bad Moon Rising" is a song written by John Fogerty and performed by Creedence Clearwater Revival. It was the lead single from their album Green River and was released in April 16, 1969 four months before the album. The song peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on June 28, 1969 and reached #1 on the UK Singles Chart for three weeks in September of that year (see 1969 in music). It was CCR's second gold single. The song has been recorded by at least 20 different artists, in styles ranging from folk to reggae to psychedelic rock. In 2010, Rolling Stone ranked it No. 364 on its "500 Greatest Songs of All Time" list. It is one of five songs by the band that peaked at the #2 spot on the U.S. Billboard chart and did not get to #1. It was blocked by "Love Theme from Romeo and Juliet" by Henry Mancini. On the 2013 John Fogerty album, Wrote a Song for Everyone, the song is included featuring the Zac Brown Band. "Bad Moon Rising" uses weather imagery to make the point that something bad is lurking "out there." Fogerty reportedly wrote the song after watching the 1941 film The Devil and Daniel Webster. It was inspired by a scene in the film in which a hurricane destroys the crops of several farms, but spares those of Jabez Stone (James Craig), the character in the film who makes a deal with the devil in exchange for wealth. Fogerty claims the song is about "the apocalypse that was going to be visited upon us". He also said that when the band was learning the song he recognized the dichotomy between the apocalyptic words and the happy melody. He said "It wasn't until the band was learning the song that I realized the dichotomy. Here you've got this song with all these hurricanes and blowing and raging ruin and all that, but it's 'I see a bad moon rising.' It's a happy-sounding tune, right? It didn't bother me at the time." In 1969, the American music and entertainment magazine Billboard described the single as being "loaded with rhythm and drive" and predicted it "[couldn't] miss going right to the top." Cash Box, another contemporary music trade magazine, described it as a "blazing bayou-rock outing" that is "louder and bolder" than the group's previous single "Proud Mary." Cash Box ranked it as the #51 single of 1969. The song has been referenced numerous times by the Plants vs. Zombies franchise, including a use in an advertisement for Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 and an aptly-named trick card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes. The song also appears in a 2023 TV commercial for Toyota.
