FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH
“…Paranoia strikes deep.
Into your life it will creep.
It starts when you’re always afraid.
Step out of line,
the man comes and
take you away...”
Buffalo Springfield delivered one of the enduring protest songs of the 1960s on its self-titled album. "For What It's Worth" was issued as a single in 1967.
Group member Stephen Stills wrote the classic track. He drew inspiration from a protest against a planned curfew in Los Angeles. Tensions mounted between youths and the police.
