"I was waiting for someone to come along, some young singer 18 to 22 years old, to write these songs and stand up," Young said. "I waited a long time. Then, I decided that maybe the generation that has to do this is still the '60s generation. We're still here."
The album's explosive centerpiece is "Let's Impeach the President." Over an urgent, guitar-driven backdrop, Young sings
"Let's impeach the president for abusing all the power we gave him and shipping all our money out the door.
Let's impeach the president for bending the facts to fit their new story of why we have to send our men to war."
In Young's view, the number is more than simply a political diatribe; it's an affirmation of free speech.
