- Vietnam: Americas First Rockandroll War - 715 words
Vietnam: Americas First Rock-and-Roll War The Vietnam War could not compare to any other war the United States had seen before.

This was also the first war in which the GIs listened to antiwar and protest songs while fighting in the conflict. In previous wars, the music had always been supportive, more or less hiding the truth of what was really going on. With Vietnam it actually told the soldiers and their families what was really happening: murdering innocent people for a lost or unknown reason.
