Fact #93144


Short story:

The United States House of Representatives Judiciary Committee opens public impeachment hearings in Washington DC, USA, against President Richard Nixon for his involvement in The Watergate Scandal. Watergate will inspire songwriters to refer to it in the lyrics of many songs, including Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynyrd (1974), I'm So Bored With The USA by The Clash (1977), and Bicycle Race by Queen (1978). Another song telling the story of Watergate in greater detail is The White House Un-American Activities Rag (1974) by Dan Murphy.
