Foo Fighters, Springsteen, Zac Brown Perform ‘Fortunate Son’ at Concert for Valor
By Shannon Carlin
The Foo Fighters and Bruce Springsteen celebrated Veterans Day by hitting the National Mall in the nation’s capital to perform at the Concert For Valor, a special tribute to those who served our country.
But, they didn’t do some patriotic track, instead they went a little controversial and performed Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Fortunate Son.”
Why is this song controversial, you ask? Well, the song is both anti-war and anti-draft and it’s being performed at a concert for those who volunteered to fight in wars, including the Afghanistan and Iraq one, that many thought were unjust.
Watch a snippet of the performance below.
