Hack #3

I am going to write my essay on the Vietnam War and how the media influenced the hippie movement and all of the songs based off of the war that emerged during that time. I was looking through Major Problems and in chapter 14 I was able to find a passage of a song by Country Joe and the Fish called “I Feel Like I’m Fixin To Die”. It is a war protest song in which Joe McDonald is berating the government for sending thousands of young men to fight and die in their war. There were several songs like these which were a direct reaction to the Vietnam war.
