Neil Young’s making an amazing new music player. He’s not making it so you can hear this.
#5. Neil Young’s First-Ever Live Album
Following the success of Harvest, Neil Young’s record label wanted another album just like it and his fans wanted him to go on tour and play every song from it. He gave all of those people none of those things. Instead, his official follow-up to the expert craftsmanship of Harvest was a circus of an album called Time Fades Away, which consisted of completely new songs recorded while on a stadium tour of the United States. By that, I don’t mean he used his downtime to hit the studio. No, he literally recorded the songs live onstage in front of scores of fans who’d never heard them before.
Hey have you ever heard the guitar riff at the start of “Smells Like Teen Spirit”?
Because you probably caught it on the 28 songs that came before it.
THIS WEEK ON THE PODCAST: Cracked’s Randall Maynard and Josh Sargent join Adam Tod Brown to ask if there’s a bigger dick than that guy who sings that “Drops of Jupiter” song, if Imagine Dragons is a real band, and if Bruce Springsteen with just a guitar is better than any other musical experience in the world.
So if that’s a supervolcano…
…why are we all super chill about the one sitting under Yellowstone right now?
THIS WEEK ON THE PODCAST: Do you have what it takes to survive a mega earthquake? Will the zombies just kind of wear themselves out?
