"They Killed Him" (Kristofferson)
from "Knocked Out Loaded" (1986)
JEREMY: "I hate this. Worst piece of crap Bob Dylan ever released. Not only is the song a piece of crap, he also violates rule # 1 of rock n roll: NEVER use a childrens choir! Never. Ever. (The only band who has done that and gotten away with it is Pink Floyd – Another Brick In The Wall).
Bob obviously was really knocked out and pretty loaded when he recorded this abysmal version of this abysmal tune. "Is there a hole for me to get sick in??"" (January 06, 2009)
BILL COHEN: "This was a wonderful rendition of a song that Dylan did not write. He did it with a chorus of children which contrasts the innocence of children with the viciousness of adults. He talks about The Only Son Of God Almighty, Jesus, Martin L. King and Ghandi. All great men who spoke about peace, and were killed for teaching peace and truth." (February 24, 2006)
