Classic Rock Tuesday: Rockin' In The Free World by Neil Young

The Lost Soul of Rock and Roll has a deep appreciation for classic rock. Every Tuesday, I will select a cut that seems to be on the heavy rotation list or a long lost classic. 

Neil Young is an artist that can deliver a powerful but beautiful song on an acoustic guitar or he can make your ears bleed with a wall of guitars. 'Rockin' In The Free World', released in 1989, was and still is an all out rocking anthem against jingoism and a materialistic society. It seems that some twenty thousand bands (i.e. Pearl Jam) use 'Rockin' In The Free World' as their obligatory protest/we're-gonna-get-all-political-and-deep-on-you song, but in my opinion, this song still is powerful twenty three years later. Enjoy.
