Flashback: CSNY Release ‘Ohio’

It was 43 years ago today (May 14th, 1970) that Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (CSNY) released their single “Ohio” as a tribute to four students killed by National Guardsmen on May 4th, 1970 during anti-war protests at Ohio’s Kent State University.

David Crosby and Neil Young were together in the days following the shootings, and were both distraught over the senseless killings and found themselves discussing, arguing, and replaying the tragic events, until Young took a guitar and sat alone and composed “Ohio.” The song, which was recorded right away, was rush-released only ten days after the shootings.
