Young at heart.

This next song is by another artist whose influence impacted heavily on 90s Grunge. Neil Young was labelled the Godfather of Grunge for his dark and guitar loaded anthems, akin to many of the gritty songs that came from bands such as Pearl Jam and Soundgarden.


This song is one of the darkest, yet most inspiring songs by any artist. Neil Young's Needle and the damage done is one accounting the troubles that man suffers with the temptation of heroin. Young's lyrics would not go amiss in any Grunge band's songs.

The song is short and sweet, just how I imagine getting into the life of a needle is.
