#910 Neil Young - "Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)"

There aren't a whole lot of songwriters better than Neil Young. This defintely one of my favourites. A lot of memorable lines in this one, like 'rock and roll will never die' and "its better to burn out than to fade away" which was infamously quoted in Kurt Cobain's suicide note. (you know you write deep shit when someone quotes you in their suicide note!)

Looking for the acoustic version? its called "My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)" See he's clever too! and Canadian! and since Young needs to be heard live to be appreciated fuilly, here is a historic performance of this song.
