This Christmas Eve marks the 50th anniversary of John Fogerty naming his band Creedence Clearwater Revival. The name reflects the name of a friend of Tom Fogerty, Credence Newball (changed to Creedence for legal reasons among others). Clearwater was taken from a beer commercial (Olympia). Revival stood for a rebirth of a band that spent the previous years named The Golliwogs.

Fogerty accomplished the goal of making the band as good as the name, half way through their very first album!
