Buffalo Springfield – for what it’s worth

 

Buffalo Springfield released a single in January 1967,For What it’s Worth, a song written by Stephen Stills.The song was later included in their re-release of their first album Buffalo Springfield. The song is ranked no 63 on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of all time.

At first, the song was a representation of the overall anxiety and turbulence arising from the 1960s events, mainly the Vietnam War.

However, Stills wrote the song about the escalating unrest between police and young club-goers,
