The POWER of this tune is unmistakable & lost in time. There is nothing on the airwaves resembling this or anyone capable of formulating such raw, unrestrained passion for their fellow citizens, for a cause, for their nation! This wasn't 'political' as much as it was PATRIOTIC truth - fit for a Revolution, as were 'Star Spangled Banner' (both the original & Hendrix' Woodstock version), 'Free America,' 'Johnny Has Gone For A Soldier' & the incomparable 'Battle Of The Kegs,' in tune w/Freedom...

My answer to the secret question if U could meet anyone In your life who would it be? Without hesitation my answer still is " NEIL YOUNG" I'm 51 yrs old with 7 siblings above me so Neil has been a staple in my family's life. He raised me alongside my parents and taught me u do IT cause its the RIGHT thing to do! Still learning from u Neil and THANK YOU!!

I can remember the killing at Kent State when I was 18 years old, very sad chapter in America. They we shot to death by 30 caliber bullet (M1 rifle). Horrible way to dye.

May 4th was the anniversary of Kent State. Another gift from Richard Nixon and friends.

Young is the real deal. I've said it before, songs should get an award for being timeless. This song would for sure be on that list. CSandN and Y not only captured a very sad time in history, but they also added great music to catch the moment. Wow what happened to music like this!!!!!!

Still brings tears to my eyes ... F**kin b**tards , they were just trying to voice there opinion and and they got killed for it . Public opinion polls clearly showed the students were blaimed by the public even though none of them had guns

Neil rocks! Very sad day in our lives.

To everyone who was't there - this was supposed to be a call to actual revolution, and at the time everybody was ready for it. Four dead in Ohio - how many more meant - how many more will step forward and be next. Seriously - I was there.

I love it when singers sing about what they believe and to take a stand against atrocities in this cruel world. We've had many mass shootings this year and I haven't heard any songs like this. Modern singers just don't care.

Never forget that our government kills its people too. Fight the power. Bravo to Mr Young. Take to the streets when the government threatens you too you mindless sheeple.

Such a shocking event. Tragic. And in no time Neil Young managed to give voice to our grief and anger.

To Thomas Barley,
Sorry I didnt make myself clear.. I am referring to current music has no meaning at all compared to the music of the 60's and 70's . This is one of my favorite songs..

You should be thinking about what it felt like to be a high school kid hearing that 4 students were killed by the Ohio National Guard. It honestly felt like the revolution was near. Now they say that Nixon couldn't be elected today because he was too LIBERAL.

You guys are splitting hairs over whether it's Neil or CSNY. It's obviously Neil's song.

Several of the people shot were not protesting at all but were just bystanders.

It was originally a CSNY single, backed with "Find the Cost of Freedom", and was later included on "So Far" which was a greatest hits collection. There are several live versions out there, too. A rarely heard live cut is on the soundtrack of Neil Young's film "Journey through the Past" (if you can find it), in which CSNY segways from "Find the Cost of Freedom" into "Ohio".

There are people writing songs like this - they just don't get airtime like they used to back then. Now it's who can use the synth voice the best and dress the most retarded.

@Tommy - This was an original Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young song from the 'So Far' album

The Peace Sign is now in fashion. The younger generation will never understand where it came from or its true meaning. I am a VietNam vet and believe it took as much courage to speak out against the war as it did to have to fight in it.

Yeah, I remember this. I was in college when Kent State went down. Things haven't changed much although it's a new generation that's fighting the old men's wars. Iraq and Afghanistan are just as stupid and short-sighte d as Viet Nam was; and just as tragic.
Eisenhower warned against the military-ind u s t r i a l complex. He was right. Too bad we have yet to learn the lesson!

Yeah the dudes gettin s**t thrown at them from the protesters were probably just as scared as the protesters, plus they were supposed to have rubber bullets.

To Otis Driftwood: Protesters back then were called un-American, too. I don't know how old you are (I was 13 when it happened), but look up some of Vice Pres. Spiro Agnew's inflammatory quotes, for example.
