Redlight King has been around for a while, their first major single gained a degree of notoriety due to the fact that they were the first band given permission by Neil Young to sample Young’s 1972 song, “Old Man”. Redlight Kings version is an incredibly catchy song that despite being released in 2011 seems to be ageless in it’s appeal.
The song and video evokes a sense of self determination and courage along with some beautiful imagery and a lovely bike to boot! The whole set up is fantastic as it is sufficiently different from the original that it doesn’t become a bad copy! Both the original and the Redlight Kings version are songs that can happily be played over and over!
