Creedence Clearwater Revival - Run Through The Jungle on Chronicle (1970)

Creedence Clearwater Revival - Run Through The Jungle
"Run Through the Jungle" is a 1970 rock song recorded by California-based band Creedence Clearwater Revival.

The song was written by Creedence's lead singer, guitarist and songwriter, John Fogerty. It was included on their 1970 album Cosmo's Factory, the group's fifth album. The song's title and lyrics, as well as the year it was released (1970), have led many to assume that the song is about the Vietnam War. The fact that previous Creedence Clearwater Revival songs such as "Fortunate Son" were protests of the Vietnam War added to this belief.

However, in a 2016 interview, Fogerty explained that the song is actually about the proliferation of guns in the United States.

"The thing I wanted to talk about was gun control and the proliferation of guns... I remember reading around that time that there was one gun for every man, woman and child in America, which I found staggering. So somewhere in the song, I think I said, '200 million guns are loaded.' Not that anyone else has the answer, but I did not have the answer to the question; I just had the question. I just thought it was disturbing that it was such a jungle for our citizens just to walk around in our own country at least having to be aware that there are so many private guns owned by some responsible and maybe many irresponsible people."
