Obviously topical. Replace this retarded chimp with the lunatic baboon currently infesting the Oval Office, and same to him.
Impeach, and gone.
You will not be missed!
Good God that is good music! Wow! Neil Young, 2006, from Living With War. Recorded at age 61. I had no idea he was still making great music. I love that anthem feel to this song. This indeed a rock anthem. And it’s got a Wall of Sound. Phil Spector introduced this concept, but a lot of others replicated it, including the Sex Pistols on their first album and the Clash on their out of this world second album, Give Em Enough Rope. Jesus and Mary Chain also had an unreal wall of sound feel. Really a lot of Young’s best music has also had a wall of sound. No idea how he did it.
When I listened to this song, I thought of the Sex Pistols. Then I remembered that Young dedicated Rust Never Sleeps to them, an act for which he suffered much criticism.
Then it hit me. It’s all the same. The Sex Pistols. Neil Young. And on and on. It’s all the same stuff. It’s all just rock and roll. From Elvis to Nirvana and beyond, it’s all the same stuff. Rockabilly, Merseysound, British invasion, heavy metal, glam rock, punk rock, speed metal, death metal, gothic, grunge, for God’s sake, it’s all the same damn thing.
It’s all just good old rock and roll! Rocking til death! Rocking the old folks home, motherfuckers!
I loved his early stuff of course. Neil Young has always been one of the greatest rockers. Of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, he was always the best.
Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere (1969)
After the Gold Rush (1970)
Time Fades Away (1973)
Tonight’s the Night (1973) (released 1975)
On the Beach (1974)
Long May You Run (1976)
American Stars ‘n Bars (1977)
Comes a Time (1978)
Rust Never Sleeps (1979)
28 albums followed that one, and I know not one thing about any of them, although Rocking in the Free World off Freedom flashes with that old magic we know and love so well.
All of those albums are out of this world. I even like Time Fades Away. Zuma is good! The little-known On the Beach is probably one of the most underrated albums ever made. Either that or the barely-known Tonight’s the Night. Great album! I had a cassette of Comes a Time in my car in 1979. I listened to it on the way to school every morning. For days and weeks and months on end. I never tired of that music. There was not a bad song on that album. Rust Never Sleeps was absolutely out of this world. Decade is a great compilation and contains a great never before released song about Richard Nixon, Campaigner. American Stars and Bars is good! Homegrown is a great song, and Like a Hurricane is one of the greatest rock and roll songs of all time.
