  • Don't want no cash
    Don't need no money
    Ain't got no stash
    (This note's for you)

    Ain't singin' for Pepsi
    Ain't singin' for Coke
    I don't sing for nobody
    Makes me look like a joke
    This note's for you

    Ain't singin' for Miller
    Don't sing for Bud
    I won't sing for politicians
    Ain't singin' for Spuds
    This note's for you

    Don't need no cash
    Don't want no money
    Ain't got no stash
    (This note's for you)

    I've got the real thing
    I got the real thing, baby
    I got the real thing
    Well, alright Writer/s: NEIL YOUNG

  • Benjamin from Milwaukie (oak Grove), OrNeil Young was sued by Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes due to Young's backup band on the album bearing the same name as Melvin's band, thus rendering the album as a Neil Young solo recording.

    Young responded by renaming the band used on this 1988 album as "Ten Men Workin'", after the opening track on the album.
  • Bill from Martinsville, NjI'm appauled when I hear a favorite song used in a commercial. But who am I to tell an artist what to do with their song? My rule for artists selling their songs for use in commercials: Sell all of the song you want, but you then forfeit the right to have that song played on the radio. Since you've associated that song with a product, having it played outside of that commercial context is then just more advertisement for said product. "Art for art's sake. Money for god's sake".
  • Joni from New York, NyI love the video for this song, which shows terribly stupid ads and how the ruin great songs.
  • Joel from Anchorage, AkI like this song because it knocks endorcements. A good musician should not have to sell-out to be successful.
  • Andrew from Springfield, MoTHe Who actually used their songs in commercials because in their early days they had shifty accountants and managers, so they put their songs in commercials trying too make some money.
  • Sejun Kim from Ft. Morgan, CoThis song was liked by me very much.
