''Rust Never Sleeps'', released in 1979, is the second live album by Music/NeilYoung, and could also be called his tenth studio album. That is, it was mostly recorded live and complemented with studio overdubs, and it introduced a set of new songs in the way a studio album traditionally does. Young had been working on these songs for years, but in final form, some of them are influenced by PunkRock. Featuring Crazy Horse, Young’s band of TrueCompanions, ''Rust Never Sleeps'' has consistently been ranked as one of Young’s best albums and one of the best of TheSeventies. The album was listed at #351 in Magazine/RollingStone's ''Music/RollingStone500GreatestAlbumsOfAllTime''.

** The song "Hope I Grow Old Before I Die" by Music/TheyMightBeGiants from their album ''Music/TheyMightBeGiantsAlbum'' (1986) is a shout-out to "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)".
** A macabre shout-out was made by Music/KurtCobain in his suicide note, where he quoted the line "it's better to burn out than to fade away" from "My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)". Young later dedicated his 1994 album, ''Sleeps with Angels'', to Cobain.
** The Australian rock band Powderfinger named themselves after the song from this album.

* {{Courier}}: "Sedan Delivery" again. From the reference to "chemicals and sacred roots" it sounds like he's in the drug trade.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The album was written in response to both the death of [[Music/ElvisPresley Elvis]] and the simultaneous rise of punk rock, in particular The Music/SexPistols.
