Am I the only person under 40 who likes this song? haha
Search for April's Pseudo Hardcore Fiefdom to tune into my first and favorite station, deep roots and an ecclectic mix of blow your doors off music!
Some sing the song because they hate the man, more Neil sarcasm?

I'm 56, a post-"flower - c h i l d " and hippie of the late 60s. I grew up with the Woodstock bands and feeling nostalgic... . u s e d to sing backup at weddings and small dives...sing i n g Neil Young. At 16 my first boyfriend was a heroin addict and very talented artist. I wonder at times if he's still alive. Neil Young is a big part of my history...th a n k you for your artistry and love.
Neil Young’s music is blended with the roots of America, what better accomplishme n t can any artist have

The Master speaks truth.
