At some point in the 90s, it became decidedly unhip to make political music. OK Computer
is one of the most lauded albums of all time, but if you were to ask people to name the weakest part of the album, a sadly large number of folks would point immediately to the political screed, "Electioneering." Fortunately, Neil Young doesn't give a fuck what is and isn't hip, and his new anti-greed/pro-environment anthem "Who's Gonna Stand Up" is his best new track since "Rockin' in the Free World." If this is a sign of new great tracks from Neil Young, then count us in.
