Neil Young's voice is so mind-numbingly awful that it's capable of inducing earaches.

Looks like someone can't handle a difference of opinion and needs some anger management. My humorous anecdote obviously struck a nerve with you, which just goes to show that any publicity is good publicity. I mean, I was just shopping for movies and having a wonderful day when the horrid vocals of Young came over the speakers. I wasn't kidding about the earache part either.

I wasn't trying to suggest that Neil Young doesn't deserve his place in the Hall, just that I think he's overrated and can't sing a note to save his life. I'm not exaggerating or kidding when I say the only time I ever received an earache from listening to a song was when I heard a Neil Young song, especially Ohio. The intrusive guitar distortion and Young's whiny vocals make Ohio a contender for the Golden Turkey award in my book.

I can't believe Neil Young is not in the U.S. or Canadian Songwriters Halls of Fame yet!

Been listening to Le Noise (2010) quite a bit lately and really digging it, particularly the ragged, haphazard guitar work. Endearingly unpolished album.

DarinRG - I too have been listening to much of Neil Young's recent work and I have to say he hasn't lost a beat. Truly one of the greatest artists of all time, he appears to be like a fine wine that gets better with age.

"Also Young's vocals on it are nearly perfect."
