Neil Young's "Let's Impeach The President" Video Available Immediately

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 31, 2006 -- There have been very few songs in recent history with the flashpoint reaction of Neil Young's "Let's Impeach The President." Included on his recent album "Living With War," the song was immediately pinpointed by both sides of the political spectrum for its direct indictment of the presidency of George W. Bush. Young has made videos for every song on the "Living With War" album, and is releasing the video for "Let's Impeach The President" today.

      "Let's impeach the President for lyin'
      And misleading our country into war
      Abusing all the power that we gave him
      And shipping all our money out the door"*
First released on May 6, 2006, "Living With War" was seen as a unique album, even by Neil Young's standards. Focused on current events of both the Iraq war and life in America during the 43rd president's rule, many fans and journalists immediately felt it was among the singer-songwriter's strongest work. Opposing views also made themselves known, and it was instantly clear that the music had a galvanizing effect on listeners. During this summer's Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young tour, named Freedom of Speech 2006, audiences reacted wildly to the band's music, both new and previous classics, and sparked a healthy controversy in several cities during the concerts.
      "Who's the man who hired all the criminals?
      The White House shadows who hide behind closed doors
      They bend the facts to fit with their new story
      Of why we had to send our men to war"*
The "Let's Impeach The President" video is available now at www.neilyoung.com.
