global citizen Video: Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Band of Horses perform Rockin in the Free World

Pretty much everyone’s covered it at this point, but at last night’s Global Citizen Festival, Neil Young & Crazy Horse brought out the rest of the festival’s bill — Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Band of Horses, and K’Naan — to sing a ten-plus minute rendition of “Rockin’ in the Free World”. The Freedom track has long been used as a political rallying cry, and given the event’s charitable mission against poverty, it worked out just right.

Earlier in the day, the non-billed John Legend surprised audiences with a fitting performance of John Lennon’s “Imagine”. You can catch that performance below, as well.

Fucking epic, just hope the Foos don’t take as long of a break as they did between Echoes and Wasting Light
