** "Lodi" is a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]]: The main character is an up-and-coming rock singer who was told he was "on his way" by a man from a magazine. He took a gig out in Lodi, intending to just stay there for one night and move on, but his career stalled out after that and he ended up stuck in town, playing in dive bars just for the hope of making enough money to get a train ticket home. In other words, a wannabe RockstarSong.

* LongRunnerLineup: Despite changing names, the band was the same lineup - John, Tom, Stu and Doug - from 1959 to 1970 and qualifies as Type 1.

* BadassGrandpa: As of May 2015, John is '''70''', and has been recording kick-ass rock songs for ''47'' years, or easily 50-plus if you count CCR's time as the Golliwogs.

** Also happened later in their career in a sense. After years of complaints from Cook and Clifford and demands for more of a role in the creative process, the band put out more material allowing Cook and Clifford to sing, write lyrics and carry the load instrumentally, with John Fogerty playing an extremely minimalistic rhythm guitar that faded almost entirely into the background--probably just to demonstrate his importance to the band's success. The resulting material was so heavily panned by critics and fans alike that it is almost entirely forgotten and de-canonized, much like The Doors' post-Jim-Morrison material.

* StepUpToTheMicrophone: All of their other albums are sung entirely by John Fogerty, but their final studio release ''Mardi Gras'' actually had he, Cook, and Clifford contributing equally to the singing and songwriting (Tom Fogerty having left the band by that point). John Fogerty did ''sing'' one more song than anyone else on that album, but it's a CoverSong.

Creedence Clearwater Revival, usually abbreviated as CCR, was a very popular rock band of the [[TheSixties 1960s]] and [[TheSeventies '70s]]. Like LynyrdSkynyrd and Music/TheAllmanBrothersBand, CCR helped define the SouthernRock genre of the era -- this in spite of the band actually hailing from the [[UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco San Francisco Bay Area]].

** Similarly, "Lodi" is pretty catchy for a song about a dirt-poor musician who has to resort to playing bars in a small town just for the hope of getting enough money to catch a train back home.
