I hope Neil Young gets a shotgun and fucking kills that asshole.

Fuck that's awful.

Toyboy

That dude claims he had Young's blessing, although it came after the song was recorded...

"We finished it and mastered it and the process of getting the sample cleared was next. So that leads me up to try and get this cleared for this great song. I thought ‘well I just want people to hear it. I think it sounds very cool and it’s important and it’s got an icon singing in the chorus. Basically everyone said no. We got it to his manager and his manager said no. I didn’t give up because I felt like until Neil who’s the artist who wrote that song, until he says no I don’t think it’s fair that people are saying no just because he’s a legend and he’s iconic and no one touches his art. He has the biggest integrity of all of the artists ever combined, you can’t do it it’s sacrilegious. I thought it’s not sacrilegious, it’s using the inspiration and the gut feeling of what he felt back then. It’s a new song, I’m not ripping him off. I’m paying him homage. I just wanted him to hear it. He actually heard it and when he did hear it, he said yes right away. He got it. He heard the song and he totally felt it. So, there ya go. Until you hear it from the artist, you never know what they’re going to say. The worst thing they’re going to say is no.”

Ian Jane
08-03-2011, 11:57 AM
Well then I hope Neil changes his mind and stand by my comments. It's still a very, very bad song. You shouldn't rap over anything from Neil Young's catalogue, let alone something off of Harvest.

Toyboy
08-03-2011, 12:02 PM
Agreed.

I like all the comments on Youtube -

"Hey! My dad died too!"

"Sorry about your dad, bro. Mine's still alive."

Everyone's dad is gonna die, assholes.

I only heard about 30 seconds of this song when I went to take a piss during COWBOYS & ALIENS. The lyrics hadn't even started, I just heard the sample with the drums and it was instant fury. I don't even like the Neil Young song all that much, it's just the bullshit fake-assed Kid Rock nature of the whole thing.

Fuck all of it.

Train seems bound and determined to create the shittiest songs known to man. They have this new shit on the radio right now...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zftcZYdOl3Y

used to love the Tenderloin
Till I made some tender coin
Then I met some ladies from Marin
We took the highway to the One
Up the coast to catch some sun
They left me with this blisters on my skin.

Don't know what I was on, but I think it grows in Oregon
So I kept on going, going, gone, right through
I drove into Seattle rain, fell in love then missed the train
That could a took me right back home to you

I been high
I been low
I been yes, and I been oh hell no
I been rock 'n roll and disco
Won't you save me San Francisco

Ooo ooo ooo, oh oh

Every day's so caffeinated
I wish they were Golden Gated
Fillmore couldn't feel more miles away
So, wrap me up return to sender
Let's forget this 5 year bender
Take me to my city by the Bay

I never knew all that I had
Now Alcatraz don't sound so bad
At least they'd have a hella fine merlot
If I could wish upon a star
I would hitch a cable car
To the one place that I'll always call my home

I been high
I been low
I been yes, and I been oh hell no
I been rock 'n roll and disco
Won't you save me San Francisco
I been up
I been down
I been so damn lost since you're not around
I been reggae and calypso
Won't you save me San Francisco

To tell you the truth
I miss everything...everything
It's a wild, wide, beautiful world
But there's a wide-eyed girl back there
And she means everything...everything

I been stop
I been go
I been yes and I been oh hell no
I been rock 'n roll and disco
Won't you save me San Francisco
I been up
I been down
I been so damn lost since you're not around
I been reggae and calypso
Won't you save me San Francisco

Oo oo oo...oh oh
Won't you save me San Francisco
Oo oo oo...oh oh
Won't you save me San Francisco

I just wrote a song called "HEY, DENVER! LEND ME FIVE DOLLARS!"

Boy its great to see the Nuggets play basketball
I drive to The Pepsi Center and have a ball
but first I stop and the Breckenridge Brewery y'all

Wazee street has some pretty girls
but there's no girl like my dope lady mama
True love and Slurpees and a great falafel are all I need

The Broncos and DIA
The 0 bus on Colfax takes me away
all the way down to Casa Bonita

Mountains and skiing and the 16th Street Mall
The Mayor and the Governor
John Elway

HEY, DENVER!
CAN YOU LEND ME FIVE DOLLARS?
I have to make a show at the Bluebird theater

HEY, DENVER!
Rock and roll and pop music
buy me a burrito at QDoba and put some guac on it

Ian Jane

We used to have to sing this in music class in 3rd grade.

When cats get up in the morning
they always say, "Good Day!"
When cats get up in the morning
This is what they say:

"Meow! Meow! Meow! Meow!"
That is what they say.
"Meow! Meow! Meow! Meow!"
That is what they say.

When dogs get up in the morning
they always say, "Good Day!"
When dogs get up in the morning
This is what they say:

"Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof!"
That is what they say.
"Woof! Woof! Woof! Woof!"
That is what they say.

When cows get up in the morning
they always say, "Good Day!"
When cows get up in the morning
This is what they say:

"Moo! Moo! Moo! Moo!"
That is what they say.
"Moo! Moo! Moo! Moo!"
That is what they say.

When pigs get up in the morning
they always say, "Good Day!"
When pigs get up in the morning
This is what they say:

"Oink! Oink! Oink! Oink!"
That is what they say.
"Oink! Oink! Oink! Oink!"
That is what they say.

No wonder everyone from my home town is fucked.

Heavy. There are dollar signs made out of snakes and swords, obviously representing his hatred of the corporate machine and his disdain for the very music industry that pays his bills but also sucks him of his artistic integrity. This is further represented by the ying and the yang, the duality of his nature and obviously representative of the conflict he feels as a major label recording artist struggling to keep his integrity intact.

I think we could all learn something from this tattoo.

This is of Rebbecca Black proportions(I even thought it was her at first).

Every time I hear this on a NY state lottery commercial I want want to strangle someone, especially the artists. At every commercial break on the Yankee channel this literally plays to the point where my brain is melting inside my skull. And now it's playing on Hulu breaks. UGH.

To be honest I wouldn't be the least bit sad if someone lit this or these artists on fire. Alive.
