Vietnam is obviously at short odds, but there's been some pretty damn good soundtracks along the years.

Napoleonic era would be a good shout, though Iraq 1 would be up there as well. Can't imagine the Hundred year war would be too stimulating, it'd have to be pretty recent

Has to be Vietnam, but then I am a bit biased liking rock more than older things.

Had the whole Vera Lynn thing and Frank Sinatra thing going on in WW2, which while not floating my boat, was probably important at the time, suiting different tastes

Weird thread. Disrespectful to the people of the countries which the West forced themselves and their petty soundtracks on. :?

Think about being a German listening to Lili Marleen while freezing to death in Stalingrad.

Vietnam had an edge to the era. Harder rock, widespread protest songs. As much as I love classics from the mid century and earlier, Vietnam’s was as intertwined as a war and musical landscape had ever been.

How is this in any way debatable?
Vietnam with days of daylight to the first gulf war a distance second. Vietnam (1965-72) is in perfect sync with the greatest era of music the world has ever known.

Beatles, Stones, Aretha, Marvin, Dylan.... even Elvis sorted shit out and got back to business. It’s hard writing down names because you leave off too many legends that would have been the king/queen in any other era. It wasn’t just because the Beatles and co were around - this is when they were at their ridiculously lofty peaks.

This debate is more one-sided than “Which of the Coors has the biggest cock?”

So who of us can hum a song from the side that actually won it?

Vietnam also produced these weird and wonderful rock and soul songs by local artists under influence of forces radio

Was the one I was originally going to post and then did some quick reading.

Weirdly and it surprised me, that song isn't about Vietnam, although it sort of became an anthem for it in Vietnam movies

And let's face it. Ace song

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Run_Through_the_Jungle

Quote:
The song was written by Creedence's lead singer, guitarist and songwriter, John Fogerty. It was included on their 1970 album Cosmo's Factory, the group's fifth album. The song's title and lyrics, as well as the year it was released (1970), have led many to assume that the song is about the Vietnam War. The fact that previous Creedence Clearwater Revival songs such as "Fortunate Son" were protests of the Vietnam War added to this belief.[1]

However, in a 2016 interview, Fogerty explained that the song is actually about the proliferation of guns in the United States.

The thing I wanted to talk about was gun control and the proliferation of guns... I remember reading around that time that there was one gun for every man, woman and child in America, which I found staggering. So somewhere in the song, I think I said, '200 million guns are loaded.' Not that anyone else has the answer, but I did not have the answer to the question; I just had the question. I just thought it was disturbing that it was such a jungle for our citizens just to walk around in our own country at least having to be aware that there are so many private guns owned by some responsible and maybe many irresponsible people.[2]

The Eroica will likely outlast any or all of the music most identified with the VN war.

Vietnam is such a hands down winner.

The Doors provided the soundtrack for Apocalypse Now.

And the Clash were still writing about it in 1980.

Ah, fair enough. Think I may have read that somewhere actually. Fortunate son then. Incredible band.

The answer to any question that involves the word “best” and which isn’t preceded by “not the” will never ever be “this hip hop or rap song”.

Probably not the demographic though

The German’s marching song for WWII Erika was also fantastic but you turn into a obergruppenführer if you post it.

There's got to be a ton of 'folk' music we don't know about either. If any of them belt out like John Tams singing "Over the Hills and Far Away" (which is 100 years older than this war, but ... )

The actual answer is, of course, the Troubles in Norn Iron.

After the Cranberries released Zombie in 1993, the RA Army council got together and, realizing that the tunes had gone to shite, gave Martin and Gerry the go-ahead to start peace talks.
