so CCR (creedence clearwater revival) is one of my favorite bands, and i know that they're considered to be the foremost swamp rock band...

but i dont really know any other bands that are considered to be swamp-rock (to my knowledge, at least).


what other bands play this style / instrumentation?

Creedance Clearwater Revival?
Edit: beaten to it. I forgot about this great, underrated classic rock band.

I can't remeber hearing anything like them, but The Ramones did a cover of Have you ever seen the rain.

creedence clearwater revival


i guess i just never thought of the so-called southern rock bands to be the same genre as swamp-rock...


the thing about CCR is that they have a different style and instrumentation than other southern rock (imo). they seem to have a lot of rockabilly influence, and also mixed acoustic / electric guitar work... also, thematically, they are associated mostly with new orleans rather than the rest of the south (despite being from california). i've never come across a band that i thought was quite like them.

I don't know any other swamp bands, but that CCR tone makes me splooge every time I hear it.

check out some of dr. johns stuff...definitely swampy! he's from Louisiana. His album
"Gris Gris" sounds like swampy, psychedelic infused rock
'Music is the best"
Zappa

i'm familiar with some of dr. john's stuff... he still doesn't have the same appeal to me as creedence clearwater revival... i like him, but he doesn't do the same for me as some creedence stuff...

The Drones have been described as swamp rock but I don't really see a similarity to bands like CCR
