Performed by Buffalo Springfield, it was recorded on December 5, 1966; released as a single on Atco Records on December 23, 1966; and peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Buffalo Springfield was the band's first album, and this song was not originally included on it. After "For What It's Worth" became a hit single, it replaced "Baby Don't Scold Me" on re-issues of the album. Notable when you consider this song's success, the group quietly recorded this without involving their producers Charles Greene and Brian Stone, with whom they had had immense dissatisfaction about the recording of their album up until then
For What It’s Worth has transcended its origin story to become one of pop’s most-covered protest songs – a sort of We Shall Overcome of its time, its references to police, guns and paranoia remaining continually relevant. The Staple Singers were among the first to cover it, in 1967, but since then, it’s been recorded by a mind-bendingly diverse number of acts: Ozzy Osbourne turned it into a grim stomper, Lucinda Williams into a ghostly ballad, Kid Rock into a classic-rock homage, Rush into a swirling soundscape, Led Zeppelin (in live bootlegs) into languid blues
For What It’s Worth was almost immediately embraced as an anthem for much larger social and political protests. It’s difficult to imagine that Stills would have made that type of impact as a member of the Monkees. The song was ripe for new interpretations because of its simplicity. It's so vague that it can almost mean anything. Buffalo Springfield didn't stay together for long, but their impact on rock history is still felt today, as several of its members went on to long and highly successful careers. By 1970, Stephens Stills had joined David Crosby of The Byrds and Graham Nash of The Hollies (and sometimes Neil Young) in a folk rock supergroup. Stills has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice: once for Buffalo Springfield, and once for CS&N. Young has also been inducted twice, the first time being for his solo work.

Either could have put in a comatose dog as their nominee and it would have been better suited to run the nation. начальный комментарий.
