Description: N N Amazon.com essential recording Young has recorded many live albums, but none capture his two dominant musical personalities with as much power as 1979's Rust Never Sleeps. The acoustic side opens with "My, My, Hey, Hey (Out of the Blue)," a devastating anthem about the state of rock & roll. Comparing the Sex Pistols' Johnny Rotten to the late Elvis Presley, Young delivers perhaps his most famous line: "It's better to burn out than to fade away."

100 Greatest American Albums of All Time (100 music items)

Standout tracks: “Pocahontas,” “Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)”"

500 CDs You Must Own Before You Die! (500 music items)

"Half electric, half acoustic, all amazing. This collection of new songs, some recorded on Young’s 1978 tour, was imbued with his ever-peculiar mix of beguiling sentimentality, cussedness, bravery and willful conservatism. Standout track: “Hey Hey My My (Into the Black)”"
