Everyone look around, what’s that sound?


Neil Young's album, Living with War, features a 100-strong choir

Neil Young writes anti-war album

Veteran singer Neil Young has recorded an anti-war protest album on which he reportedly lashes out at George W Bush in a song called Impeach the President.

The Canadian star has described Living with War as "metal folk protest".

The title track includes lyrics such as: "On the flat-screen we kill and we're killed again. And when the night falls, I pray for peace."

Young is one of rock's most political artists, thanks to classic anthems such as Rockin' in the Free World and Ohio.

The 10 tracks on Living with War were recorded earlier in April and feature a 100-strong choir, the singer said on his website. more from the BBC

Did we “shoot our wad” prematurely in an Iraq ground war? I agreed with the air war, and at the time I strongly disagreed with a ground war, and still disagree. In having nuclear threats in various countries, the first strike option might be taken away in logistics and world opinion, having had the ground war in Iraq. The people of America feel more and more lied to, and even the conservatives are starting to see a Police State forming around them.

It is a sad day, indeed, when too many Americans are beginning to question the open lies told to us daily, discovering the facts, and actually start routing for the other side. Conservative or Liberal, take notice as we might have a common fight against the Commercial Elite.

Come on guys (and gals), wake up.
