Updated: Jul 2




Neil Young performs "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)" at Farm Aid in Champaign, Illinois on September 22, 1985.


Neil Young is a co-founder and board member of Farm Aid, along with Willie Nelson, and John Mellencamp. The three agreed that family farmers were in dire need of assistance and decided to plan a concert for America. The show was put together in six weeks and was held on September 22, 1985 in Champaign, Illinois before a crowd of 80,000 people. It raised over $9 million for America's family farmers. Performers included Bob Dylan, Billy Joel, B.B. King, Loretta Lynn, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and many more.


Dave Matthews joined Farm Aid's Board of Directors in 2001 to help further Farm Aid's mission of keeping family farmers on their land.




Lyrics


My my, hey hey

Rock and roll is here to stay

It's better to burn out than to fade away

My my, hey hey


Out of the blue and into the black

They give you this, but you pay for that

An' once you're gone you can never come back

When you're out of the blue and into the black


The king is gone, but he's not forgotten

This is the story of a Johnny Rotten

It's better to burn out than it is to rust

The king is gone, but he's not forgotten


Hey hey, my my

Rock and roll can never die

There's more to the picture than meets the eye

Hey hey, my my
