Creedence Clearwater Revival, often shortened to Creedence and abbreviated as CCR, was an American rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The band consisted of lead vocalist, lead guitarist, and primary songwriter John Fogerty, rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty, bassist Stu Cook and drummer Doug Clifford. Their musical style encompassed the roots rock, swamp rock, and blues rock genres. Despite their San Francisco Bay Area origins, they portrayed a Southern rock style, with lyrics about bayous, catfish, the Mississippi River, and other popular elements of Southern US iconography, as well as political and socially-conscious lyrics about topics including the Vietnam War.

"Many names were thrown into tha hat, including: Deep Bottle Blue, Muddy Rabbit, Gossamer Wump and Credence Nuball and the Ruby... I was out with a friend of mine, and he was telling me about a friend of his at work, and his name, believe it or not, his real name was Credence Nuball. He came to the Fillmore to meet us."
