Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

In the liner notes for the 1991 box set Crosby, Stills & Nash, David Crosby wrote: "It was written the night Bobby Kennedy was killed. I believed in him because he said he wanted to make some positive changes in America, and he hadn't been bought and sold like Johnson and Nixon - cats who made their deals years ago with the special interests in this country in order to gain power. I thought Bobby, like his brother, was a leader who had not made those deals. I was already angry about Jack Kennedy getting killed and it boiled over into this song when they got his brother, too."
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young played this at the 1969 Woodstock Festival, and this song was used to open the video, which shows the workers preparing Max Yasgur's farm for the festival. (thanks, Cam - Cambridge, Canada)

"Hey Man, Nice Shot" was nearly a Nine Inch Nails song, as Richard was working with Trent Reznor when he came up with it.
