PROTEST SONG NUMBER ONE ON THIS DAY IN 1965

Eve-of-destruction

“Eve of Destruction” was written by P.F. Sloan in 1965. Although Several artists
have recorded it, the best-known version was cut by Barry McGuire. The vocal
track was a rough mix and was not intended to be the final version, but a DJ
obtained a copy of the recording and began airing it. The song became an
instant hit and a more polished vocal track was never recorded.
