To celebrate the 50th anniversary of their debut record, Creedence Clearwater Revival have released their first-ever music video for their hit protest anthem, “Fortunate Son.”

Despite its modern subject matter, the “Fortunate Son” video retains the song’s original, political fervor. It shows men and women of all races and socio-economic statuses proclaiming the chorus “It Ain’t Me.”

“For me, protest right now is just showing pure positivity in the face of division and anger,” director Ben Fee said in an official statement. “I wanted to highlight the community and positivity that everybody shares…I wanted to show what America feels like when you actually hit the road and drive throughout the states.”

According to a press release, this music video is just the first part of the band’s ongoing CCR50 campaign.
