Untitled[edit]

i just deleted someone's own take on the song, see "as for me.." in the previous version. are you kidding, "as for me..." this site isnt opinionated you douchebag

This page is irrelevant. unless someone adds significant information I vote it should be deleted.


I disagree. There are lots of articles about songs on Wikipedia and this one has at least 4 or 5 individually interesting and meaningful points in it. Furthermore, the page List of songs about politicians references this page, saying that the song "Bad Moon Rising" is about or references Richard Nixon. This article, however, says nothing about the reference to Nixon or, indeed, the meaning of the song. I would change it myself, but I don't know anything about a reference to Nixon nor the intended meaning of the song. If someone knows, they should really add it.

"This article, however, says nothing about the reference to Nixon or, indeed, the meaning of the song.

I'm with you about adding the background to the page! However, I heard it was a reference to nuclear holocaust, should the Cold War suddenly become hot-- but that was just hearsay on the oldies radio; I don't know for sure, either. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.71.108.10 (talk) 01:41, 2 January 2011 (UTC)


Cover versions and other pointless lists[edit]

90 percent of this article was a long list of bands that have recorded versions, movies that have included it in the soundtrack, pop-culture references - most without references, and virtually all without any particular point. So I've thrown out most of them (I chicked out about the pop-culture stuff, which can probably all the tossed), reducing them to statements that the songs has been recorded/used often. - DavidWBrooks (talk) 17:44, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

"90 percent of this article was a long list of bands that have recorded versions …" which is just why I came to this page, to try to find the name of a band whose version I remembered, but whose name I'd fortgotten. Except you'd deleted all that information. Thanks. Mate. Because that information isn't in one place anywhere else. You need to remember two things when editing Wikipedia - (1) what to you might be boring to someone else might be just what they are looking for (2) if it's not to be found anywhere else on the net, leave it in.

In general, that is not the consensus among wikipedians, who don't want other information buried until long, long, long lists of trivia. Perhaps that's the wrong approach, but it's gotten to be habit. - DavidWBrooks (talk) 19:38, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Hassie[edit]

Why is Bad Moon Rising referred to as "Hassie" in this article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Will in devon (talkcontribs) 15:24, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
