Neil Young, a popular classic rock artist and a member of the Rock and Roll Hall-of-Fame (he was in inducted in 1995), has long been a critic of corporate America and an advocate for environmental causes.

His recent anti-tar sands tour was criticized by Canadian federal officials, after he called a major operation outside of Ft. McMurray, Alberta a “wasteland” that “looks like Hiroshima.”

Young also lashed out at the corporate side of rock (and some major U.S. beverage companies for that matter, see the video at the bottom of this article) with his song ‘This Note’s for You,’ released in 1988.

Now, he’s taking on what’s becoming one of the biggest environmental and health catastrophes in the world — genetically modified crops, specifically cotton.
