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.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
