Yes, all the songs I've heard from them I love. I don't know that much Neil Young but thanks to the whole grunge connections I know of the Hey Hey My My song and I think I always knew Rockin' in the Free World, and Crosby etc. I know Teach Your Children Well, that other one they played at Woodstock, and I think one or two more, and I always love listening to those.

I like how bluesy that one sounds, and I think I might have heard it before.

To answer the question this should be obvious but punk rockers hate Ronald Regan because punk rockers tend to be very liberal, basically hippies with different music, the first thing you learn about when searching out punk is that there is a whole punk ethos, so naturally they would hate someone who is conservative. When I found out about the "punk ethos" I got all freaked out because it seemed to be everything I thought and believed in, like I thought I was the only one who was DIY, when I first heard there were things like record producers I thought that was weird because why didn't the musicians do that themselves, and why did you need to mix and such anyway, it seems like you would just tape how the band sounds and put the record out.

Cus they though he was gonna blow up the world. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zU9lv_WqK6k not that thats punk at all but check out the end of that video...when even main steam pop music of the day is showing it its obviously a concern my more then just the underground...my stage name for ten years was Ronald Pagan... in tribute to all the regan era punk bands I love.

Thanks, it is more interesting than just the regular photo all over the place. I tend to love negatives too.
