Released: January 1967

Stephen Stills’ famous protest song is not, as many mistakenly believe, an anti-war missive. Instead it was penned in reaction to the police shutting down various clubs on the Sunset Strip, enforcing strict curfews and inciting several riots. That it's been re-appropriated as a soundtrack to the chaos of Vietnam just proves the incendiary power of what is really quite a sedate track.
