One of the most recognizable tracks of the band is, without a doubt, ‘Carry On‘ which was the opening track of the band’s second studio album, ‘Deja Vu,’ released on March 11, 1970. The song inspired many of the artists afterward, such as Led Zeppelin whose track, ‘Friends’ from the album, ‘Led Zeppelin III’ draw inspiration from Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young’s song.

Being one of the musicians that were heavily inspired by Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, Corey Taylor shared a post on his official Twitter page announcing that he released a cover version of ‘Carry On’ in order to pay tribute to the legendary band for inspiring him as a young musician.
