* BadassGrandpa: As of May 2016, John is '''71''', and has been recording kick-ass rock songs for ''48'' years, easily 50-plus if you count CCR's time as the Golliwogs.

* RepurposedPopSong: The first line of "Fortunate Son" was re-used, out of context, in a commercial for Wrangler jeans. That was Zaentz's fault -- Fogerty noted that Wrangler eventually bothered to find out he wasn't happy about it and stopped doing it.

** The use of CCR songs in commercials in starting in TheEighties (like Thompson's Water Seal using "Who'll Stop the Rain") without John's permission was a major factor in his final falling out with his ex-bandmates (since they basically authorized Zaentz to start licensing their catalogue).

Added DiffLines:

* SelfPlagiarism: John Fogerty certainly has a SignatureStyle, right down to specific chords and riffs he favors. But he also has the distinction of having been [[http://mentalfloss.com/article/27501/time-john-fogerty-was-sued-ripping-john-fogerty sued for self-plagiarism]], when Fantasy Records took him to trial for the similarity between "Run Through the Jungle" and his solo hit "The Old Man Down the Road". The jury ruled for Fogerty, but the case ended up going all the way to the Supreme Court when Fogerty tried to collect attorneys' fees from Fantasy. Fogerty also won there (by a 9-0 decision), establishing a precedent for victorious defendants in lawsuits to fairly collect fees from plaintiffs.

* UrbanLegend: "Fortunate Son" is often claimed to be about a modern figure whose father was a Vietnam-era politician, such as UsefulNotes/AlGore or UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush. [[http://www.snopes.com/music/songs/fortunate.asp Fogerty himself stated]] that the song was inspired by David Eisenhower, who was both the son-in-law of UsefulNotes/RichardNixon and the grandson of UsefulNotes/DwightDEisenhower.

* WeUsedToBeFriends: CCR's breakup was one of the most acrimonious in rock history. Tom Fogerty still hadn't patched things up with his brother and other bandmates at the time of his AIDS-related death in 1990, and three years later John Fogerty refused to perform with Cook and Clifford at the group's [=RnR=] HOF induction ceremony; John actually assembled a completely different band (including Music/BruceSpringsteen and [[Music/TheBand Robbie Robertson]]) for the performance without telling anyone, and when Stu, Doug and their families found out, they all stormed out in anger. Even John's own relatives -- the family of his late brother Tom Fogerty -- were pissed off by the move. Evidently the rift between John and Stu / Doug still exists to this day.

** "Bad Moon Rising" is a catchy little tune... about the end of the world.
