Gun Club covering CCR
when i was in highschool i always wanted to start a band that sounded like a punk version of Creedence...then someone gave me a copy of a Gun Club record and i realized it had already been done. The Gun Club were one of a number of 80s punk bands to embrace CCR's roots rock/swamp boogie sound (Firehose, X, Green River, and pretty much the whole grunge scene...hell, Nirvana started off as a CCR coverband called The Sell Outs). anyways Gun Club covered CCR on their second album Miami ....which may not be as essential as their debut album, but still pretty much rules.
