Neil Young Cracks Top 40 for 40th Time: Top 7 Highest-Charting Albums

neil-youngRyan Book at Music Times writes that this week marked an interesting accomplishment for Neil Young, who debuted an album in the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 for the 40th time with The Monsanto Years, which opened at no. 21.

Book writes: “Many of the reviews for Monsanto have been mixed—either as a question of its musical content or because of Young’s politics, which tackles numerous companies including the titular Monsanto and Starbucks. Regardless of what you think about Young’s politics, and even if you dislike his style personally, you’ve got to hand it to him for having cracked the Top 40 on the albums chart 40 times. Music Times isn’t going to run through all 40 of those entries, but we’ll give you a quick rundown of the seven highest-charting albums in Young’s catalogue. You may be surprised at some that did…and didn’t…make the cut.”

It confuses me to hear people shouting at us that musicians should just shu…t up and entertain. Where the hell did that lame-ass idea come from? Music was, is and always will be about social condition and cause and change. Music speaks for the oppressed and downtrodden. Music launches revolution. Woody Guthrie and Hank Williams and Bob Dylan and Joan Baez and Johnny Cash and Joni Mitchell and Willie Nelson and John Lennon and Eddie Vedder and Neil Young and all the giants of the art know this. What the fuck kind of music and musicians are these boneheads actually listening to?
