This month is a joyous time for Neil Young fans. After eight long years, he is finally returning to the road with his longtime backing band Crazy Horse. This has been their longest break since Young began playing with the garage band in 1969. 

Accordingly, we have a question for you: What is Neil Young's single greatest album? Are you into his early Seventies classics, like Harvest and After the Goldrush? Maybe you dig the overlooked gems like Time Fades Away and On the Beach. You could be into his Eighties genre experiments like Trans and Old Ways, or you might have some sort of mental condition and cast your vote for Life or Landing on Water. Really, vote for whatever you want – but please just vote once and for just one album.

You can vote here in the comments, on facebook.com/rollingstone or on Twitter using the #weekend rock hashtag.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
