Neil Young – “A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop”

UPDATE: The song is actually called “A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop,” and its full video is out now.


Neil Young has been highly critical of Starbucks due to the coffee chain’s alleged involvement with Monsanto and use of GMOs, although Starbucks says they aren’t involved in the Monsanto lawsuit that got Young all riled up last winter. That hasn’t stopped Young from campaigning against the world’s most dominant coffee company. He’s even written a song called “Rock Starbucks,” to be included on his new concept album The Monsanto Years. You can preview the music video in the Democracy Now newscast below.

If this song ends up on Spotify, it might make for some fascinating barista DJ sets.
