Neil is god

Political correctness is gunning us down now. Peace
True story GREAT song.
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!!
Soldiers are gunning us down
Neil Young..a true original...s u c h a talent..a gift to us all...thanks , Neil.
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.
Lived it you know !!
Gifted artist..love everything Neil..

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.
calebbarsch
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.

If this happened today, would anyone write a song? = previous comment
IF THIS HAPPENED TODAY - EVEN WORSE...inno c e n t s killed frequently.. . w h o writes anything besides CNBC? Sad
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.
Why is this on the Allman Brothers Station?

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
no this isnt csny--its neil young
If this happened today, would anyone write a song?

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.
Oh how this makes me wish I was AND wasn't part of my parents generation.. .
r.hoffmeyer
Hearing this song today (May 4) makes me weep with anger.
This song still does and always will send shivers donw my back! Classic CSNY!!
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!
kirsch27
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.
stphdriggs
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.

This is one of the most recognizable guitar riffs in rock music. Its simplicity, yet substantial emotional impact are hard to find in rock music produced later.

One of many events that probably kept me from being sent to Vietnam... I registered for the draft in 1973. Not a lot has changed, apparently, but at least now we pursue our global "adventurism " with volunteers.. . and a mission plan.
I have been a Neil Young fan--------- - s o m e t h i n g about high school at Belpre,Ohio class of 1970
kent state happened days before my high school graduation
dead people aren't meaningful?
I must be getting old because I can remember when modern music actually had meaning.
dmartin248
Nothing like peaceful protesting.

I would expect this type of thing in 3rd world countries, not here.
legobumpus
4 dead in ohio?
At least we have the song so that people will never forget the tragedy. Thanks "old Neil"!

Lots of errors were made that day. No one was innocent, no one was guilty. The key difference is that the soldiers had live rounds.
The kids on the campus weren't completely inocent. They burnt down the ROTC building to protest against the government presence in some country in Asia. The kids were also rioting. The governor then asked for the national guard like he always did. The National Guard were getting junk thrown at them. One guard said a student threw a chunk of concrete at him. The Guard felt threatened and opened fire. I do agree though it was senseless, they're just kids.
