Mutants of a certain age still remember the power of the protest song and counter-cultural anthem, "Ohio," by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (written by Neil Young). On Saturday night, the band Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit performed the song in Santa Barbara, joined onstage by David Crosby and Shawn Colvin (captured here on a phonecam).
"Ohio" has new relevance as the world watches the horror of what is happening in Ukraine and marvels at the courage and resolve of the Ukrainian people.
Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?
Here's the 400 Unit performing "Ohio" with Crosby at Red Rocks in 2019.
