Neil Young to release worst album in history of music

by editor on February 3, 2009

YouTube Preview ImageYou won’t get much of an argument from anyone if you say Neil Young is the worst singer in the history of rock ‘n roll.

Yet despite this seemingly insurmountable handicap, he’s managed to produce a couple pretty good songs over the years.

But now the aging rocker is about to release a CD completely dedicated to songs about electric cars. That’s not a typo. Electric cars. “Fork in the Road” includes catchy titles like “Cough Up the Bucks,” “Hit the Road,” “Get Around” and “Fuel Line.”

Here’s a video of the title track. Consider yourself warned.

On a recent road trip we were debating the top American Rock Bands of all-time. My list came down to two bands. The Doors and Skynyrd.

Aerosmith might have made the final two but since they got sober…..they suck.

I love some of Neil Young’s stuff. It rocks. I saw him live once and he was with Crazy Horse and it was the loudest show I ever attended.

Now as for whether or not I am a right-winger…I am probably a bit right, but I played left-forward in soccer. I don’t have any idea what Carrie Underwood looks like. I assume she’s hot because she is pretty famous. But I am not a douche bag.

I went to over 40 Grateful Dead shows in my life but the fake hippies became too much to take. I resented some college punk driving to a show in daddy’s BMW and then getting in my face and urging me to eat “meatless” chili or veggie hotdog at his stupid tailgate.

It guess it all comes down to the famous phrase “shut up and sing”…….

I could have used HelmutErnst at the Rammstein gig in Minneapolis on May 8. Some German translation would have been helpfull. Language aside, 1 of the best shows I’ve seen, & the biggest arena production I’ve ever seen. 24 trucks & a crew of 100 for the “Made in Germany” tour, it was massive.

BTW, with all the gigs I’m going to this year, my hearing may be as bad as his English skills.

At least we find some common political ground. My sons (one very liberal, the other liberal leaning but not very political) went to that same concert in Chicago, and also thought it was great. One of them mentioned that the group comes from what used to be East Germany, and that one member is internationally certified in pyrotechnology. (Otherwise, they’d never be able to get away with some of those effects.)

Not really my kind of music, but looks (from the clips I’ve seen) like a very interesting show.

A few things…

They are from East Berlin.

Their frontman, Till Lindemann, is a pyrotechnician.

Rammstein are by no means everyone’s cup of tea. You either get it or you don’t. They also get away with subject matter because they are a German langage act. Their fans generally know what the songs are about, they know many of the lyrics, but don’t know exactly what all the lyrics mean. I fall into this group. There are websites that have translations & meanings, & I looked into them to make sure I was’nt supporting anything I did’nt want to support.

As for their shows, visually stunning. Very well done stage production, well thought out lighting, & Yes, lot’s of pyro. Plus they might be the best in rock at the art of stagecraft. They have to be good, since most of their audience does not really speak much German. So they have learned to come across visually & have a very good interaction with their fans.

BTW, If you voted Olivia’s comment down because it was her & did’nt read what she wrote, you suck. Not much of a political statement. We see eye-2-eye on nothing, & there was nothing there to vote down.
