"Bad Moon Rising" is a song by Creedence Clearwater Revival, written by John Fogerty. It was the lead single from their album Green River released in April 1969, four months before the album, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and #1 on the UK Singles Chart for three weeks in September 1969 (see 1969 in music). It was CCR's second gold single.

The song has been recorded by at least 20 different artists, in styles that range from acoustic folk to reggae to psychedelic rock to zydeco. Sonic Youth named an entire album after it.


John Fogerty wrote "Bad Moon Rising" after watching a movie called The Devil and Daniel Webster. There was a scene in the movie where there is a hurricane. John then wrote "Bad Moon Rising" about "the apocalypse that was going to be visited upon us."


Many people have misheard the lyric "There's a bad moon on the rise" as "There's a bathroom on the right". Fogerty has occasionally slipped this into his live performances of the song.. This can be heard on his 1998 live album Premonition.
