LET'S IMPEACH NEIL YOUNG!
Many people around the world love the music of Neil Young, the old grungy Canadian rocker. I don't.
Neil Young's latest album is full of newly written protest songs, mainly directed at President Bush and the U.S. Government. Now I don't have any problem whatsoever with protest songs. Bob Marley is one of my favorite artist. And while I don't like Bob Dylan's voice that much, his lyrics are more profound than any other artist. The Clash, next to the Who, are my favorite band and Joe Strummer made protest songs cool.
But Neil Young is different. Neil Young is Canadian. And he's singing songs directed at President Bush and the U.S. government. Now true, Bob Marley was Jamaican, and the Clash were English, but their songs were either directed at their own governments or to the world in general. Clash songs like "Guns of Brixton" and "London Calling" dealt with domestic issues in London and its urban area. Bob Marley sang about his Jamaican ghetto home Trench Town, and was greatly involved with the presidential election in the late 70's between Edward P. Seaga and Michael Manley (he was even shot for his involvement.)
Yes, Neil Young has children who are American citizens. But he's not. And until he decides to become one, I don't want to listen to any American protest song he writes. I do not agree with the majority of what Bush and our current government is doing. But Canada has its own problems as well. So Young first needs to sing about how his bacon got burnt, or how the NHL was on strike, or on the uber-high living prices in Vancouver before he should attempt to talk about impeaching my president.
Neil Young was also voted the #2 best living songwriter by Paste Magazine, after Bob Dylan. What a load of b.s. How can you put Paul McCartney, or Pete Townshend BEHIND grungy, dirty Neil Young. BOY GEORGE should be in front of Neil Young. Hell, MILLI VANILLI should be placed in front of Neil Young. "Let's Impeach the President"? How bout, "Let's Impeach Neil Young". What a disgusting Canuck he is.
