It's the same old story. Asshole wingnut decides to run for president, decides that the song he's ALWAYS wanted to use is this lefty liberal anthem written by a lefty liberal rock star, and the lefty liberal rock star is like, "Fuck off, I did NOT say you could use my music, and also I hate you." This time, it's Neil Young, and he's real pissed that Donald Trump decided to play "Rockin' In The Free World" as he waddled onstage to announce that he's pretending to run for president again. Young's manager released a statement saying that "Donald Trump's use of 'Rockin' in the Free World' was not authorized," and also, "Mr. Young is a longtime supporter of Bernie Sanders."

So, two things here. First of all, out of all musicians, Trump picks Neil Young, one of the most politically outspoken lefty songwriters in US America, and Trump thinks it'll be fine? What, could he not find his Woody Guthrie CDs?

Second thing, HEY NEIL YOUNG! If you love Bernie Sanders so much, why don't you put this sexy Bernie Sanders tee-shirt on your chest? It's black, and Sanders is dressed up like the mad scientist from Back To The Future! We're sure it comes in your size. And even if you're not Neil Young, but you love Bernie Sanders, you should go ahead and buy a t-shirt too. $22 includes free shipping!

Okay, so let's have Wonkette Music Hour! In addition to "Rockin' in the Free World," which Stereogum describes as a "scathing indictment of the George H. W. Bush administration," here are 10 more of our favorite commie liberal pinko Neil Young songs, which Donald Trump can fuck right off to, but better not try to use in his campaign:

1. We're going to have to start with "Ohio," Neil Young's big fuck you anthem in response to the Kent State massacre, where the National Guard killed students protesting that other massacre known as the Vietnam War. But Trump would have solved Vietnam, by building a fence around it, you betcha.

2. Oh remember when Neil Young wrote that song, "Let's Impeach The President"? It was actually, FUN FACT, not about Bill Clinton's cum-stains, but about George W. Bush and all his wars.

3. With its recurring refrain, "Look at Mother Nature on the run in the 1970s" (Young now exchanges "21st century" for "1970s" in live performances), the very environmentally-friendly "After The Gold Rush" has a message that runs counter to Trump's desire to constantly -- to borrow from Young's Laurel Canyon buddy Joni Mitchell -- "pave paradise and put up a parking lot." Also, Young was doing lots of drugs when he wrote this song.

4. Oh, "Southern Man" was a good one! Another Neil Young "fuck you," this time to racism and segregation in the South. Trump could use this one, because he's the "least racist" person, everybody tells him that.

5. Oh look, here is Neil Young singing "Get Back To The Country" at Farm Aid in 2008. Farm Aid was actually not about supporting factory farms and their accompanying shit lagoons (which sometimes explode, foamily), but rather the small farmers what made America great. Not only that, but Young links small farms to the liberal lie of climate change:

“The farmers are on the front lines of climate change, and climate change is the issue of the 21st century,” he says. “It’s a bigger way of looking at what we’re all doing here. It’s about getting the carbon out of the sky and back into the earth.”

Does Donald Trump believe in climate change? UH HAVE YOU FELT HOW COLD IT IS OUTSIDE?

Yeah, Young has gone strangely rightward in the past, like when he released the Patriot Act-loving "Let's Roll," after 9/11, but come on, everybody was a little freaky in those days.

So anyway, yay music post! Feel free to share more commie liberal pinko scum songs, for Donald Trump to Not Use, in the comments, which are not allowed.
