* Before becoming an actress, Creator/SissySpacek was a teen pop starlet performing under the name Rainbo. In 1968, she released the song "John, You Went Too Far This Time," an answer song to the cover (if not the content) of the "Two Virgins" album from Music/JohnLennon and Music/YokoOno. That album, in case you're wondering, was notorious for John showing off his [[MaleFrontalNudity Norwegian Wood]] on the cover.

** A couple of little-known garage bands, the aptly-named Patriots and the Jayhawkers, also released right-wing answer songs to "Eve of Destruction". The former had a different melody and shouted lead vocals angrily decrying [=McGuire=] and his message, while the latter was sung to the tune of "Eve...", with the singer affecting a proto-Cookie Monster vocal.

* Folk singer Buffy Sainte-Marie's anti-war "Universal Soldier" got an answer song from Music/JanAndDean, who recorded the pro-war "Universal Coward". Dean Torrence was supposedly so upset with his bandmate's jingoistic decision to record the song that he did not participate, thus technically making it a Jan Berry solo.
* Barely out of his teens, Music/BobSeger sang on Doug Brown and the Omens' parody song "The Ballad of the Yellow Beret", an answer song of sorts to [=SSgt.=] Barry Sadler's 1966 number one hit "The Ballad of the Green Beret". In here, he mocks draft dodgers as being cowards, but a couple years later, he had [[OldShame changed his tune entirely]], releasing the anti-war "2 + 2?" with his new band, the Bob Seger System.
