obviously "fortunate son" by CCR is anti- war. The song is about the draft situation during the vietnam war. One could 'dodge the draft' through political connections(such as being a senator's son), or by paying a sum of money. The lyrics 'it ain't me it ain't me, i ain't no senator's son. it ain't me, it ain't me, i ain't no fortunate one no.' refers to that correlation. this is just an example of part of the reason's it's anti-war. you can find the rest......there's many more.
