  • songfacts ®
  • We recommend this 27-and-a-half minute cut for those of you with a huge appetite for some Crazy Horse. Many of the songs onPsychedelic Pill, including this one, came out of some extended jam sessions by Young with his backing band after the recording of their covers record Americana.
  • The song captures many of the frustrations and complaints Young addressed in his 2012 memoir Waging Heavy Peace, such as his disdain for the poor sound quality of MP3 players.
