Neil Young has set his targets on American corporations with the Monsanto and Starbucks copping the wrath of Young in the upcoming ‘The Monsanto Years’ album.
Young’s ‘The Monsanto Years’ is his most lyrically vicious album since Neil tore George W. Bush a new arsehole with the ‘Living With War’ album in 2006.
‘The Monsanto Years’ is about the corporate greed of the publicly listed Monsanto Corporation in the USA that genetically modifies food. The company also manufactured Agent Orange, the herbicide weapon used by the American government during the Vietnam War.
Earlier this week Young said in a statement:
“Contrary to the misleading information coming from Starbucks, the coffee company is in alliance with other Food Giants, including Monsanto, in suing the state of Vermont to overturn the GMO labeling laws voted for by the people.
“An alliance is a pact, coalition or friendship between two or more parties, made in order to advance common goals and to secure common interests. Starbucks and Monsanto are members of the Grocery Manufacturers Alliance.
“The Grocery Manufacturers Alliance sued the state of Vermont to overturn the people’s will to mandate GMO labeling in Vermont.
“In communications with Starbucks the company was unresponsive to the direct question on whether Starbuck’s coffee product contained GMOs”.
By raising awareness of Monsanto, Young has also brought into question the values of U2’s Bono who supports Monsanto’s move to use Africa to harvest Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) because, according to NaturalNews.com “They’re future consumers for the United States.”
Neil Young has created ‘The Monsanto Years’ with Promise of the Real. an LA-based rock band fronted by Lukas Nelson (vocals/guitar), along with Micah Nelson (guitar, vocals), Anthony Logerfo (drums), Corey McCormick (bass) and Tato Melgar (percussion). The Nelson brothers are the sons of Willie Nelson.
