Too bad. "Paint it Black" is a very good choice.
"In the late 1980s, "Paint It Black" became associated with the Vietnam War due to its use in both Hollywood films and TV shows. It was used in the ending credits of the 1987 film Full Metal Jacket and it also became the theme song for the CBS-TV show, Tour Of Duty, a Vietnam war era series that ran from 1987-1990. The airing of the song on the TV show especially — which played around the world — contributed to the song's revised popularity in the late 1980s-early-1990s. In May of 1990 in the Netherlands, after "Paint It Black" was re-released there as a single again, it hit No.1 on the Dutch Top 40 chart. Later marketing and packaging of the song in those years also referred to the Tour of Duty TV show."

Still a big fan of "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane for this period.
Good choices came through though.

I still can't believe Country Joe and the Fish's " Something is Happen'n Here" Didn't make the cut. That and "Ride of the Valkyries" are instant Vietnam connections to my '60s brain.

"We Gotta Get Out of This Place" is THE iconic song based on my Dad's commentary about the war. "Paint it Black" was also very popular, but the Animal's song united the whole base where he was stationed in one unified chorus with everyone belting it out at the top of their lungs.

Alice's Restaurant but I doubt the younger generation does not know what the Group W bench is…..Country Joe's "I don't give a damn…My next stop is Vietnam" also might not be remembered. Yet, it still means a lot to us old farts who lived during that time….

Where's ‘Revolution' ( any version) by the Beatles?

"We Gotta Get Outta This Place" (The Animals)
It's a great song but what did it have to do with the Vietnam War?

I always see these surveys after they're completed.
Search and Destroy by The Stooges should be on the list.
