Rocker Neil Young set to release "Impeach the President"

Let this be our anthem. Play it loud and play it often. Can't wait to hear it! Hope it's on iTunes. -hl

It's safe to say one certain song on Canadian rocker Neil Young's latest album isn't going to make George W. Bush's playlist anytime soon.

In fact, the U.S. president may just blow off the entire album, which, word has it, will be called Living With War and is expected in stores soon.

So far the album and its featured track — "Let's Impeach the President" — have been shrouded in secrecy.

Except for one thing: The song includes a rap with Bush's voice set to a lush 100-voice choir, and words like "flip-flop" are heard frequently, according to Harp Magazine.

Filmmaker Jonathan Demme, who made the award-winning documentary Neil Young: Heart of Gold, told a friend in a recent email that all the work is done.

"Neil just finished writing and recording — with no warning — a new album called Living With War," Demme said in the email, quoted online by Harp."It all happened in three days."

Young, the son of the late Toronto journalist Scott Young, is no stranger to protest rock, and has long been active in Farm Aid, which seeks to publicize the plight of farmers.
